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.

On a Rainy Sunday Afternoon, Nothing is Better than Flowers!

I have written about the Stevens-Coolidge Place in North Andover, MA three times, the most recent post was last year when the estate had it's first open house. However, not all rooms were available to see. Last month, the house was open for it's "Rooms in Bloom" event, and going was a perfect thing to do om a gloomy Sunday afternoon. Good decision, because this time I got to see the pantry and kitchen. The local garden clubs had floral displays in each room, which brightened up the afternoon.

Previous posts of this house are at the end of the post. If you live in the area or want to visit, the grounds are open year-round and you are free to walk around. The house open just a few times a year.  Parking is across the street.
