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.

Will Some of these People Please Pay Up.

The will of Charles Clarence Poole, my great-grandfather, is rather long, so it won't be typed in full. However, there are two sections that are quite interesting to me. The first pertains to his six pieces of property from Evanston, Illinois to California. The second are the names or companies who owed my great-grandfather some money. The list is long, total number is 66. I wonder if I could collect from a descendant. I've decided to post their names.

Will signed on the 11th day of February, 1912 in Evanston, Illinois.
Charles died 3 Dec 1914 in Winnetka, Illinois and buried in Washington, D.C.
Probate Court of Cook County. Docket 147. p. 246. File No. 22,330. Filed Dec. 16, 1914.
