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.

Always sad to see broken stones. One of our cemeteries has a fence with so many stones piled up we cannot count them, and there is no way to read the inscriptions either.

Oh I agree Carol, it is sad. This is one of my more favorite cemeteries. I went back on the 6th and there have been major changes for the good.
