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.

Lexington, Massachusetts -- One monument with 77 Names

After living in this town for 8 years and attending grades 4th through 11th, I thought I knew quite a bit about what was there to see. That was, until I toured the newly renovated Buckman Tavern two days after it opened this spring (2014). As I walked around the grounds, I noticed the back of a memorial, it was inscribed with names, and that was new to me, since I had always just looked at the front. (As a genealogist, it reminded me to always walk around four sides of a cemetery never know what could be written unless you look first.) I've incorporated photos taken just a year ago with some taken in early spring to show some popular sites on the green.
