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.

Castle Hill at the Crane Estate

Castle Hill at the Crane Estate (everything you want to know)
Ipswich, Essex Co., Massachusetts

This estate is where my husband likes to visit the most, as a matter of fact, he took me here almost 50 years ago. We subscribe to the organization, Trustees of Reservations, that maintains the house, thus, free admission. If the house isn't open for touring, you usually can walk the grounds any time. You may have seen the mansion in a movie before.

After these photos, there are two links, each for a year we went to see the house decorated at Christmas.

From this point, you can walk straight down to the ocean.
