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.

Lincoln Public Library -- History and Genealogy Section

Lincoln Massachusetts
A war memorial, apparently no others are in town, and I had to post the unusual tree shown below.

A nice private room with plenty of familiar books and a good selection of books about Lincoln. The librarians were very nice here, and were able to give me directions to my ancestor's grave.


I was unaware that a children's sing-a-long was going on when I went to the old section of the Library but, soon the voices gave it away. Loved the stained glass, but it's very hard to photograph when the sun is shining through. At least these pictures give you an idea of the beauty of this building.




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.
