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.

My husbands stepsister was married to a French. I think they were from Tennessee. Don't much about French the connection. She was a Herrick born in Michigan.

I always enjoy reading your blog. Don't do a lot of commenting though.

Come on Hummer, I've seen a lot of your photos, almost one a day, and I've enjoyed them, since they come from you. Thank you.
Sharon, please don't feel that you have to comment, I see you around on fb, and that is enough for me. But, thank you for this comment.
