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.

There Is A Lot to Like About Lowell -- The City Through Reflections

"There is A Lot to Like About Lowell" is the city slogan.
(See tab on right side called "Lowell Series" for many more articles about Lowell.)

You took such fun photographs, Barbara. They are almost like double exposures except that we're seeing forward and backward, into the shops, the fronts of the shops, and the reflections in the windows. Maybe one day I'll get to visit Lowell. Maybe....

Claire, I feel the same way. But in the early 70s I couldn't stand the city and high unemployment (although I had a job), so I left for 20 years. Now back, I love the city, thanks to the National Park Service.

Nancy, thank you. I wanted to mention that these pictures were taken all over the city, so you can see there are a lot of original brick buildings still standing. It was a fun post to do.
