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.

Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, A Favorite Resort Town

One of my favorite towns. We have been here three times in 15 years, so I'll share a few photos.
Old railroad station used as the visitors' center and rest rooms.






Lake Winnipesaukee.
In season there are several boat tours from Wolfeboro to other towns along the coast. Lake Winnipesaukee, the largest lake in New Hampshire is approximately 21 miles long covering 69 square miles. The driving distance around the lake is 63 miles.
