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.

Woburn Public Library / Winn Memorial Library, Woburn, Massachusetts

Woburn Public Lbrary
Also known as Winn Memorial Library
Woburn, Middlesex Co., Massachusetts

This library is one of the largest I've been in, but the most crowded. There are plans to raise funds to eventually enlarge this Library.

Copy of a painting of Thomas Carter's Ordination Ceremony. He was my 9th great-grandfather.

Microfilm cabinets, below.

I love the reading room. So many books and no space for more. Nobody allowed to climb the stairs.

Extremely small computer area (above) and tiny Children's room (below).
