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.

You need to Know What You Have So You Can Share With Others Your Cemetery List


One of the best things you can do if you have a genealogy blog is know what you have. Today, I am talking about cemeteries, but not about the 234 entries I have with the label of cemetery. My problem is, it's impossible to remember where a certain post is, under the cemetery label, because they all are labeled cemetery.

Today, I decided to make a new label and have it be useful to me and for those who are searching helpful information, like maps and names in a cemetery, and you don't want to use FindAGrave.com. Most of these were done by towns, or individuals (such as my husband's cousin and uncle).

I am covering the following towns in Massachusetts: No. Andover, Billerica, Bedford, Watertown, Cambridge, Andover and one in Maine. Shortly, I will add one for Dedham, Massachusetts (the best I've seen yet).
