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 -- KRANS -- (2 Generations) New York to Canada

The Krans line is not a direct line in my tree and I am not related to any of them.  But because I had the resources, the time and a friend who has this line, I spent almost an entire summer working on this family.  I have 79 Krans and the lineage is for five generations.
