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.

A lot of time has passed since I last did a Surname Saturday entry. I have been doing other things, some related to genealogy and some pertaining to the city of Lowell, Massachusetts, that I now find to be an extremely interesting city and lots of fun to photograph. Why not check out my label, Lowell Series to see my photos and learn the history (see right side tab).  In addition, I've made connections with other researchers and people who contacted me.

My interests are no longer with the oldest of my ancestors to make cousin connections, after all how fun can it be to share a 10th generation ancestor. I think that stems from when Gary Boyd Roberts once told me there are over a million people who share my John Alden ancestor. I am now more interested in finding a 3rd, 4th or 5th cousin. That being said, I do have a lot of research already done on my oldies, and I plan on using my data from my Roots Web site for future entries here. I update it at least twice a month, by making corrections and adding more sources.  With almost 44,000 names, I am not interested in adding more names, unless brick walls are solved. My direct lines are in All Caps. If you have questions, by all means, please write me.

The above is my plan for the following five winter months.
