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.

My Ball Line Is Changed, Is Yours Correct?


Cemetery stone of
Nathaniel Ball
Died 1725
Just last month I wrote about some errors a well-known genealogist made in one of his books, and 20 years later he corrected them. See HERE. This post is also about errors in books.

Recently, I read,"Adventurers DNA Study: 'What? I'm Not Related to George Washington!'" by David G. Ball in American Ancestors, Summer 2011, Pages 44-45. He mentioned several errors in old books, but thanks to DNA, and lack of real sources, the errors were brought to light. I am alerting researchers who have the Ball New England line (Watertown or Concord, Massachusetts) that my article of July 2011 is not correct, and I have removed that post. Since I have the Concord Ball branch, I am sharing it to this post, and not the Watertown branch, which is incorrect. The supposed immigrant, William Ball, was also removed since he isn't related to the New England Balls. The descendants to John, shown below, is not a complete list, but my direct line (in All Caps) is.

I discovered that David G. Ball has a website which includes descendants of all Ball-surname immigrants to New England. It is called, "The New England Ball Project" and may be found at www.newenglandballproject.com.
