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.

The Names of the Persons Receiving Early Land Grants at Ipswich, Massachusetts

Last year, while in Ipswich, my husband and I toured the Ipswich Museum. One of the first things to catch my eye was a wall hanging, listing names of persons receiving early land grants in Ipswich. When I took the photo, I knew at some point I would transcribe the names. There are quite a few readers who have some of these names, as do I, and I thought some of you might enjoy seeing your ancestors named here.

Also hanging on the hallway wall is a large map showing where their land grant was. The numbers correspond with those on the original list above.
Last year I did a post called, Everybody Loves Ipswich, Massachusetts, which consists mostly of photos taken in the town. You may view that post HERE.
