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.

Saugus Iron Works, Saugus, Massachusetts

Saugus Iron Works, Saugus, Massachusetts
Birthplace of the American Iron Industry. A lovely nine-acre park, fun to stroll around, go into the reconstructed buildings and learn. I hope you don't mind all the photos, but I couldn't decide which ones to delete. Iron works house above, ca. 1680s.

  Even though there was a Do Not Touch sign, I touched the old foundation before I saw the sign.
