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.

Welcome to my Genealogy Blog, Redux


Central Street, Lowell, Massachusetts

It was a nice summer, and I enjoyed my three month break from blogging, except I slipped up recently, and posted a few things because I was itching to do it.

One change I am making is described below, and it will be posted to my heading
description. With over 930 posts written I'd like to ease up on the writing...which I know isn't strong, but will focus on taking the pictures that relate to history in some way.


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. In addition, I have taken a lot of photos to go along with my stories.

After 4 years, I have decided to update my blog, and make it more useful to those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos, I know you don't all want to read about my ancestors. I have always loved photography, and even took 8 cover shots for the DAR Magazine many years ago. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, historical sites, cemeteries and war monuments. If something else interests me, I’ll take pictures. I’ll also take some nature shots, like the ocean, flowers, and the lay of the land.

I have always enjoyed your photos Barbara and look forward to the new focus on your blog!

Thanks John. Here's a heads up, if you ever change your header in the future, it will be applied to all your posts, even the first one. So, if a person reads my very first one, they will read that in 2009, I've been blogging for almost 4 years, grrr.

I'm sure everyone will enjoy your pictures! I paint as a hobby and enjoy seeing the work of others. I take quite a few pictures for painting reference but the quality of my photos are not there yet. I just tell people I do my own photo-shop when I get out the canvas!

Enjoy seeing your work!
