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.

Help, Please Tell Me Which Surnames You'd Like to See for Surname Saturday

Time flies, and it doesn't seem possible that I am close to posting my 100th different surname on my blog (see right-hand side for listings under Surname). There was never a rhyme or reason for the ones I selected first, except in the beginning when I chose my brick wall surnames, my great-grandparents surnames and those of which I had a lot of information. Now, I'm needing a little help, because I have no idea which ones can possibly help you. Since this is basically a New England blog, that is why I centered on my Connecticut and Massachusetts names. On my list below, I'm including a few New York and New Jersey lines (most are my Dutch lines). I don't want to list every surname in my tree, there has to be an end, and there will be with your help.


If you feel like it, please let me know which surnames you'd like to see, if any, perhaps just write the surname in the comments section.
