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, Wyoming, 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 -- JAQUAYS (Connecticut, Vermont, Quebec)

My JAQUAYS line is another "Brick Wall."  It is a rather unusual name and some records spell the name as: JACUAY, JACKWAYS, JAQUES, JACKWISE, JACQUAYS, and there are other ways, I am sure.  I believe the family originated in Rhode Island and a JAQUAYS family was in No. Kingston, Washington Co., Rhode Island for several generations. My WILLIAM JAQUAYS married LUCY CROSS, of Connecticut, and they are buried in Cowansville, Missisquoi Co., Quebec, Canada.

You can contact a quebec researcher named Marlene Simmons (you can goggle) who can possibly help you find further material for your research, she has access to many Quebec Eastern Township church records on microfilch files. she charges a fee but will search first and give you names etc so you do not lose money searching for nothing. There was much traffic in the Quebec/Vermont border area, and a great portion of Vermont remains french speaking due to settlement in Vermont. Thus the reluctance to join the Union after the revolution.

Brian, Sorry I haven't responded before now. I am very familiar with Marlene and used her services a lot 11 years ago. Thank you so much for your comment.
