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.

Kittredge Park, Lowell, Massachusetts

 Kittredge Park, Lowell, Massachusetts
Many old timers of Lowell remember when Sen. Paul Tsongas planted, watered and tended to the gardens. He lived just a few streets on Mansur Street.

Update: Recently Eileen, of the Lowell Doughboys and more... blog wrote a post about Paul Edward Kittredge, for whom this park is named after. Please read HERE.

I remember Paul Tsongas doing that.  We moved in across the street from the late Senator about 20 years ago and Kittredge Park was important to him.

Here is a blog post on the WWI Soldier for whom the park is named.

Cliff, thank you for writing. I subscribed to her site, but it hadn't come through, so I went through all the groups I thought she was in, trying to find the post, and no luck. Could you please give me the link? I'd like to place it in my post. (She could have posted it in a genealogy group, actually I think that is where it is, but still can't find it.)

Cliff, it was a very good post, and quite interesting, but sad.
