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.

I am Really Going Nuts with Russia

During the past month, there has been a large increase in my stats, and I'm not happy about it. I only wrote five posts in July and am happy with the response I received. The problem is with the Russians! They seem to be reading my posts or doing something else with my data. Let me explain. I haven't written a post in a week, yet my stats show 2180 hits came from Russia this week, vs. 700 from the United States. I can't figure out why, nor do I know what they are looking at. It makes me nervous and nuts.

The listing below is for the past 24 hours or so. The links are active, so you could read these articles, if you want to. The numbers reflect the hits. Now, I ask, why would 19 people be reading about my two-year old blog, or 14 people interested in seeing my 2nd great-grandfather age through photographs and pictures?

I'm still trying to decide what to do, but until then, I'll share what somebody out there is  interested in.
