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.

Jennison of Massachusetts

My Jennison line is from England and they settled in Watertown, Middlesex Co., Massachusetts before 1637. This is a recently discovered line, and I'm happy to add this family to my tree. As in the past, my direct lines are in All Caps. I will be glad to share what I used as sources.

Note: This was revised on July 24, 2015, from my April 2015 posting, since I added eight new names and used quite a number of new sources.
