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.

Follow Friday -- Facebook or Google

If somebody had asked me which of the two, Facebook or Google, was getting the most hits per week, I would have said Google without a doubt.

Imagine my surprise when, I read in the Boston Globe the other day that "Facebook surpasses Google in US hits" wow, I thought what does this mean?  Of course, I know what it means, but what about down the road? I can imagine Google starting up a social network site of its own, (not the new Buzz, but something totally different) and Facebook will offer a blogging format. Now a days, you shouldn't get too used to anything on the net, because it will change soon.  This is a little news item, nothing more.  I just thought it was interesting.  So for Follow Friday, I will be following whatever news there is on Facebook and Google, and may the best site win.
