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.

Bishop from Connecticut -- Surname Saturday


The Bishop surname is not new to me. It's my mother's maiden name and my middle name. My immigrant ancestor, James Bishop was a lieutenant governor of Connecticut in 1681-83 and deputy governor 1683-1691. My line has always remained in Connecticut. During the past five years, I've written quite a few posts about my Bishop family and took a to New Haven, Connecticut to take photos of his tombstone. But, I've never done a register report such as the one below. It's probably a good thing, because rather recently, I discovered that some of my information was wrong, due to an error by a genealogist (see post). All data has been corrected, and is shown for those working on the Bishops from Connecticut. My direct lines are in All Caps.
