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.

Newburyport Public Library, Newburyport, Massachusetts -- History and Genealogy Room

94 State Street
Newburyport, Essex Co., Massachusetts

The first three photos were taken in the old section of the library.  Love the two fireplaces in the same room.

Why does this always happen? I was 45 minutes late when we arrived last Saturday at 12:45.

Two years later, I returned and took the following 4 photos.

The Archival Center Website. (Update 1/19)

Building Built 1771, used as a library since 1865.
As with all the other libraries in my series, I love that they kept part of or all of the original building.
