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.

There Is A Lot to Like About Lowell -- The Cobblestones of Lowell

"There is A Lot to Like About Lowell" is the city slogan.
(See tab on right side called "Lowell Series" for many more articles about Lowell.)

The thing I love the most about cobblestones is how they look in pictures. Intersection of Shattuck and Middle Streets, above.
Intersection of Palmer and Middle Streets.

Center of Lowell, Merrimack Street, Central Street to the left.
Note: Unfortunately, the above stones were removed in November 2017, and the area was paved over. See news article, with photos.

Cobblestones on Palmer Street, above were repaired. Streets below need some repair.

Jackson Street at Market Street.
Some cross walks have a nice designs.
