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.

Newberry of Connecticut and Michigan

A Bridge to the Past
One of my oldest and dearest genealogy friends passed away last March. I learned of her passing when I called her in Michigan (I live in Massachusetts) to share some news. Her grand-daughter answered the phone and gave me the news. One of her favorite lines was the Newberry family, out of Connecticut and migrated to Michigan. We were 5th cousins, once removed and our shared line was Scrambling.

Because she had sent me her report on the Newberry family, I've decided to share it. I think she would be happy I did. Unfortunately, I don't have sources, but can tell you that she was a member of several genealogy clubs and had been doing genealogy way longer than my 23 years.

It is pretty interesting to think that two people can connect through a building and an occupation, not just through genealogy (we are 5th cousins, once removed). My 2nd great-grandfather, William Frederick Poole, was the first librarian at the Newberry Library and her 2nd great-uncle provided the funds to have the library built.  The above paragraph was written for my blog post, which may be read HERE.
