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, Wyoming, 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.

Surname Saturday -- All About Names

Surname Saturday is all about names. We can write about one person, our family, another unrelated family or even about a person who is a brick wall. Just about anything goes. Last week's post "Numbers on the Tree" proved to be an eye-opener, because after I posted it, I printed out my entire tree, thanks to RootsMagic4. Not only was I able to see whom I'm missing, but I saw the Location Report was a total mess, and nothing at all professional looking (I will deal with this problem later).

I am listing my first five generations, not to impress anybody but to hopefully get a cousin connection. Most of my readers are finding me through google searches because they want information on a surname they are looking for, a report about a historic site, a certain cemetery, the DAR, NEHGS, a historical society, a location, or something about a celebrity or murder. So, it goes without saying, if you happen to find my site, and have any of these names, I would love to hear from you. This Generation List will be continued next week.
