Pages

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.

Watertown Book, with Map and List of Burials at the Arlington Street Burying Ground

There was quite a surprise found in the above book, and one could have helped me in April before I called the Watertown, Massachusetts Cemetery department to help me with finding the burial of Samuel Jennison. If I had had the above book, and enclosed map, I would have had what I needed. Below is a copy of the very fragile pull-out map, that fell apart in two as I opened it, and a listing of those who were buried there (numbers corresponding with the map).

I've typed up only the surnames, and you can see one of three pages to get the given names. The below alphabetical listing shows the corresponding grave number on the map.
