Since December 19, 2019, I have known four people who died. This was unusual because two were related to my husband and three were genealogists. Because I often use my blog posts as a diary (now a 10-year diary) I am posting the very impressive, and long obituaries for my two genealogy friends; Fred Barnes and Doris Pearsall. As my title states, they both wrote genealogy books, were born in Lowell and died within a week of each other. Not noted was they both visited the Family History Library in Salt Lake City.
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.
