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.

Once Again, Seeing Jones at Mt. Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, Massachusetts -- Tombstone Tuesday


When I took the below photo in the fall of 2011, and posted it to my blog on January 24, 2012, I always knew I had to return. Two things I'd like to point out here, first while the fall colors are beautiful, and I got a perfect shot but, I didn't get the entire gravestone. In error, I didn't walk around the entire monument, and to my dismay, I discovered I had missed two other panels, with names. The other thing I did in error just happened two days ago, when I took new photos with lots of shadows from the trees. Ideally, I now like to take pictures on a cloudy day, without many trees around, but you can't always get the perfect. However, I can walk around a stone. Please scroll to see new photos.
