My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Duck Boat Cruise Along the Charles River and Streets in Boston Massachusetts

The Duck Boat took us past the Boston Gardens and we saw the statue of George Washington. It was rather fun being so high up. This was taken on Arlington St. and Commonwealth Avenue on March 30, 2012. It was the first day for the Boats, and it was a beautiful jackets on some of the men shown above.

Our State House location on Beacon Street. Opposite this is the well-known Shaw Memorial.

Charles River and the Leonard P. Zakim Bridge.
Prudential building in the center, and the Longfellow Bridge.

Museum of Science. This is where I began my tour (there are two other locations to board a Duck Boat).
