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.

Massachusetts -- Old Matchbook Collection #7

I almost forgot was in a box near the fireplace. Unfortunately, this restaurant closed this year. Note no area code for phone number.

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. Some of these books are from the early 70s. I had two different books for the Colonial Inn in Concord, each with different area code. The Inn now has its third area code! In future days, I'll be posting matchbooks from all over the United States.
