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.

Early Family in Lowell, Massachusetts

Property of Barbara Poole
This is a photo of my husband's family. His mother is the little girl in the front, with her siblings. His grandmother, born 1892, is the lady in the middle. Since the children were born in Lowell, undoubtedly, this is where the photo was taken, circa 1917. The husband was an electrical engineer in a silk factory, the wife didn't work, the oldest daughter was a bookkeeper in a yarn mill. The other children were not working in 1930, per the census. In later years, my husband's mother worked in a mill, and later at Prince Spaghetti as a bookkeeper.
