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.

Where are Some Participants of the Boston Tea Party Buried?

Earlier this March, my husband and I played tourists in Boston. Although there was snow on the ground, it was a nice day for plenty of walking. I came across a sign at King's Chapel Burying Ground listing many of the participants of the Boston Tea Party, so I decided to show the cemeteries where they were buried. The first three listed are very near each other, but because of the snow, we didn't walk through them. The last photo was taken in the summer and is a distance away. Last year I did a post, "How Do You Find Your Ancestors in the Boston Cemeteries?" This post tells you exactly how to see if your ancestors were buried in Boston and in which cemetery.
