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.

Old House In Concord, MA...Who Lived Here? You Probably Know

Actually, this is a reproduction, and I am quite sure you have heard of the name of the person who lived here for two years, two months and two days. The original 
was next to a pond, a few miles away. See below for the answer.

The tombstone for Henry D. Thoreau is HERE, I posted it to my blog in May 2010.
