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.

Daniels House, Salem, Massachusetts

The dates of 1667 - 1756 on the Stephen Daniels House in Salem, Massachusetts are an indication to me, that quite possibly, four of my six Stephen Daniels lived during that time frame in this house. All six generations lived in Salem. Visiting the area, and walking the street, #1 Daniels Street, now a bed and breakfast, was indeed a treat. I've know about it for years, but the desire to see it was prompted by the unbelievable pictures I saw of it on facebook after a winter storm this year. Please see below photos taken by a resident of that street.

Back in February, I posted the below blog about the house located in Salem, Massachusetts.
At first glance, I thought these two images were drawings, then discovered they were photographs of the Stephen Daniels house in Salem, Massachusetts. Immediately, I wrote the photographer to see if I could copy it to this blog, and Tom Stirling gave me permission. It was taken during one of our areas largest snowstorms. I don't remember ever putting somebody else's photos on my site, but I'm so happy to put Tom's here.
I have seen pictures of it, but have never gone, but will this spring, especially since it isn't far from where I live. I've got 6 generations of Stephen Daniels in my tree, so I'm not sure exactly which one lived here. Some investigating needs to be done. The house is a bed and breakfast, so I could stay there too.

Oh, Wow! You should stay one weekend in Salem and sleep in your ancestral home! I did that one night in Nova Scotia. My ancestor's house in Lunenburg was a B&B, which is fun because he ran it as a tavern and inn, too.

Those photographs are wonderful. I imagine staying in the same house that your ancestors lived in 300 years ago would be amazing.

Book that room now! LOL

Oh, Barbara, how exciting to be able to go inside and walk where your ancestors walked! I love the coral and grey/brown together, and the snow photos are amazing. I can see why you thought they were drawings.

Thank you all for your comments. I think the reason I haven't stayed there is because it's only an hour away. Maybe I'll change my mind in the fall. If I do, you'll see plenty of pictures...you know me.
