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.

Surname Saturday -- BARNES of Connecticut (5 generations)

The Barnes family is another old Connecticut line and I am showing five generations of my direct line. In my tree there are 73 Barnes, most lived in Hartford County, Connecticut.  My direct lines are in All Caps.

At the left if the Barnes Chapel in Bristol, Connecticut, designed by my grandfather, Earle K. Bishop in the 1920s. The Wikipedia site for Bristol provided some interesting tidbits, one was: "it was once a leader in chrysanthemum production and still holds an annual "Mum Festival." Since I need the roots, I think I see a trip in the future to visit the Festival, several museums and a cemetery or two.
