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.

Lowell Locks Colored with Light At Night

The sky looked threatening, on September 1, 2016, as the crowd of local residents gathered around Swamp Locks in anticipation for the 7 p.m.  illumination of the locks and its gatehouse on this very, very warm evening. Many of us had cameras, and I knew my simple "aim and shoot" camera probably wouldn't get very good pictures. However, when I compared my pictures with others I saw on-line, I though mine were similar and that is why I finally decided to share the only ones I took.

To read more about this special illumination, please read the article in the Lowell Sun newspaper, called: Lowell lights the locks to illuminate canals' beauty, potential
