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.

Bright Boston Lights at Christmas


Nice site describing Quincy Market.
The Christmas tree lit up while we were there, showing many colored bulbs, gold (above), all green or all red and later multi-colors.

It was beginning to get dark, so I took this photo from the State House, overlooking a part of the Boston Common. My husband has never been in the building, I enjoyed giving him a tour. I was in the area for a specific reason, and I'll blog about it at another time. The great sunset, Christmas lights, cold, good meal and bright moon were all bonuses. The temperature was about 17 degrees. We walked about two miles, and I didn't feel the cold...much.
