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 -- LAY (From Connecticut to Vermont to Michigan)


UPDATED: JULY 28, 2015.

My Lay line below begins with the 4th generation, my first three generations of Robert Lays are all in Saybrook, Middlesex Co., Connecticut.  Those first three generations may be seen at this current link. Some cemetery stones have already been posted to a Tombstone Tuesday blog. For the longest time, this line was my "brick wall" partly because it was so difficult finding information for a LAY in google or anywhere.  Then a meeting with Gary Boyd Roberts, a genealogist at the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS), solved it all, because he knew exactly where I could get the entire line! Turns out this line leads back to my only Mayflower connection, john Alden. Another post will cover that.  Currently, I have 278 Lay names in my genealogy database.
