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.

WV, TN, NY, OH, NJ, PA, DE -- Old Matchbook Collection #5

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. This photo shows many locations, but not many matches from each area. I went to the Greenbrier in West Virginia twice, and The Burning Bush in Gatlinburg, Tennessee three times.

Glad I found these by a a candle holder. I only wish I had saved books from The Plaza, Waldorf Astoria (stayed there twice for 2 nights) and others I've forgotten about. 

And sometimes I took other offerings in the room, not always soap and shampoo!
