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.

Wow! A lot of matches to my family here! Platts, Allens, Dodges, Trasks and Wallises. My great grandmother's brother, Alonzo Hoogerzeil, married Mabel Cressey in 1895 Beverly. She was the girl next door, and a descendant of Noah Cressey and Rebecca Trask.
