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.

Jesup Memorial Library / Bar Harbor Library, Bar Harbor, Maine -- Genealogy Section

The Jesup Memorial Library in Bar Harbor, Maine
The front room is the reading area.


Main section of the Library. The patrons are looking at the books on sale. I love the two staircases on each side of the window.

The photos are of past Library directors. The tiny genealogy room is shared with books in large print. Part of the room is shown to the left (below).

The collection is next to the chair. A cozy alcove for one person.

A list of all the libraries, with genealogy departments, I've visited in New England and New York is below. All are linked to my posts.
