The Life From The Roots blog topics have changed several times since I began this blog in 2009. I initially wrote only about the family history I had been working on for 20 years. Years later, I was into visiting gardens, historical homes, churches, libraries that had genealogical collections, historical societies, war memorials, and travel/tourism places. I also enjoy posting autographs and photos of famous people I've met or have seen.

Along with my New England roots, other areas include New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada.

Please check out the labels on the right side for topics (please note, they need work). Below the labels and pageviews is a listing of my top nine posts, according to Google. Four of them pertain to Lowell, MA. These posts change often because they are based on what people are reading.

A Walk Along Dutton St., Merrimack St. and Several Side Streets in Lowell, MA

Recently a photo was posted to a Lowell Facebook site. There were many comments as to where it was taken, some shared a memory or two and then there was some doubt about it even being in Lowell. I mentioned that I would go to that area and take pictures as I was having some doubt. I took over 100 photos on my 90-minute walk and decided to share some here. When I got home, the Admin. sent me a personal message saying the photo in question was taken in Lawrence, MA, a  city about 15 miles away.

About two weeks ago, this was posted on Facebook. This is also Dutton St., about 1970. Two of my new photos are of this site. Dutton Street is very wide.
