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.

Please, no more

Several days have been spent thinking about the Awards issue. I say issue, because quite a few people don't believe in them, and some do. Now, is the time to let you know how I feel about them. About three years ago, like a chain letter, various awards were given to bloggers who were felt to be deserving of an award. When I saw that a lot of good writers were being left out, I felt uncomfortable about receiving the ones I did, so I didn't participate. However, I did recognize the 30 people who honored me with one or more awards, including two well-known certified genealogists, by mentioning their names and their own blog name/link.

During that time, I also received some special awards, including being one in their top 100 genealogy sites awarded by MyHeritage and The Rose Blogger Award by Lucie LeBlanc Consentino. You may see all the names and links of these kind people at Awards.

With sincere appreciation and gratitude, I want to thank the three bloggers listed below for the four new awards. Please visit their blogs, if you haven't already done so.
