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.

Bedford Free Public Library, Bedford, Massachusetts -- Genealogy and Local History Section

Even though Bedford is close to where I live, I've never been in their library, the Bedford Free Public Library, nor do I have ancestors from the town. The library is huge, and I was pleasantly surprised with it. Loved the open spaces, use of light, and the room holding the Bedford Collection.


Two views of the Bedford Collection room.
An example of some of their holdings.





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 post for that particular library.
