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.

The Fells Estate, near Mt. Sunapee, Newbury, New Hampshire

The Fells
Route 103A in Newbury, New Hampshire

The Fells, the name of a historic estate and gardens, a great summer retreat of John Hay (1838-1905), statesman, poet and diplomat.

The link below, from The Fells has many lovely photos of the gardens and the house. Unfortunately, I haven't toured the house yet, and that is why there are no interior photos.


Love the pink lady slippers.




If you sat at the above bench, you would see the view below.









Lake Sunapee.
