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.

HERE LYES THE
BODY OF ENSN
SAMUEL MANNING
AGED 67 YEARS
WHO DEPARTED
THIS LIFE FEBR
22ND 1710.

I had a lot of difficulty getting a sharp image. The FindAGrave picture, shown as last photo below is razor sharp clear, so my problem must have been the lighting. The photo above is darker because I sprayed it with water, the original, without water is below.



Samuel was my 8th great-granduncle. I wrote about the house he built in 1696 (below) recently.
