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.

California, Nevada Matchbooks -- Old Matchbook Collection #3

Matchbooks found by the fireplace.

I have decided to part with my matchbook collection, but before I throw them away, I thought I'd share them. Hopefully a few will bring back old memories. The California and the Reno, Nevada matchbooks are from 1978, when I went to visit my sister a week before we began our cross-country trip to Virginia via Reno and on to Wyoming. I have been to Las Vegas twice. In future days, I'll be posting matchbooks from all over the United States.
