So what is NERGC? It stands for New England Regional Genealogy Conference. It is held every two years, and the past four days it was held in Manchester, New Hampshire. As you can see from the above photo, there were many smiles and a baby! I met at least four people I've known for 15 years or more. My husband Bill knew four. And, in addition he had the ear of Michael, Diane L. and Diane S., Juliana and Christa (both from Ancestry) an ear. I wanted to post them to facebook, but only five would upload, so I'm posting through my blog.
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.

Just found these 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. Some of these books are from the mid-70s. I have been to New Orleans and Wyoming twice. And to the Outer Banks in North Carolina every summer for close to 20 years. The Steve's matchbook is from Buffalo, Wyoming. In future days, I'll be posting matchbooks from all over the United States.
