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.

Happy New Year's from Lowell, MA and New Zealand

Several months ago, I received a handmade 2013 calendar from a friend who wanted to show her appreciation for some genealogy research and connections I provided to her. Her love of photography has been incorporated into this great desk-size calendar. This is a wonderful benefit of helping people, and it came totally unexpected.

Happy New Year from Scotland, Barbara. A client in NZ sent me a brooch and some dinner place mats to thank me for genealogy work - so kind :-)

You always get more than you give I find when you help people. I received "An Early Christmas Gift" and wrote about it on my blog. This was really a "gift" from people I will never know, but they made a great contribution, and it was the Best Christmas gift, as well, that I could have received. Happy New Year and Happy Blogging!
