The Life From The Roots blog topics have changed several times since I began this blog. In 2009, with my first posts, I wrote only about the family history I had been working on for 20 years. Many ancestors lived in New England so it was easy to visit gravesites and towns where they lived. I shared many photo. Years later, I was into visiting gardens, historical homes, churches, libraries that had genealogical collections, historical societies, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history. I enjoy posting autographs and photos of famous people I met or saw.

My New England roots are in Connecticut and Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire). Other areas include New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada.

Please check out the labels on the right side for topics. Below the labels and pageviews is a listing of my top nine posts, according to Google. Four of them pertain to Lowell, MA, three are memorials, one about a surname and one about a discovery I made. These posts change often because they are based on what people are reading.

Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Boothbay, Maine

Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Boothbay, Maine

The photos are in no order, other than the first one, which is my favorite. We have been to this garden five times, first visit in 2012, when the garden was five years old. There are many walking paths, a large area devoted to children, numerous types of gardens, ponds, small waterfalls, a boat dock where you can take an hour long trip around the lake, and beautiful flowers to enjoy.

Different flowers for the cats, depending on the season.

The four photos below were taken on our first visit in 2012. I'm sure the shrubs, plants and trees are much larger. And, the parking lots as well.
