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.

Frederick Ayer, Lowell Cemetery -- Tombstone Tuesday

I took this tombstone photo because I had written about Frederick Fanning Ayer's houses twice in my blog posts. The first post was about his Lowell house that later became the American school, formerly an orphanage. The second post was about his huge house in Boston, built by Louis Comfort Tiffany. When I learned that Mr. Ayer was buried in Lowell, after his 1918 death, I decided to post my pictures here.
