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, Wyoming, 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.

Corey, from Quebec, Canada to California -- Surname Saturday

I was very happy to hear from Ed McGowan in April, 2013, when he  located me online by using the name of Jane Elizabeth Rosenberger. Jane had married Reuben Corey, both were from Missisquoi County in Quebec, an area where many of my ancestors were from. They were his great-grandparents. Jane Elizabeth Rosenberger was my 2nd cousin 3x removed.

Reuben Corey 1838-1914 was married to Jane Elizabeth Rosenberger 1844-1902. What's unusual is they were both born in the same area in Quebec, married in Vermont and migrated to southern California, had three children there, then died in California.

The Corey line was added into my tree and perhaps this information will help somebody.
