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.

Tombstone Tuesday -- A Makeover for a 1660 Andover, MA Cemetery

The below cemetery has been visited, by me at least 15 times, as it is rather close by, and since I have ancestors there, my husband and I like to stroll through it.  The first two photos show what we always saw, lots of trees. Imagine our surprise earlier this year, when we saw that a number of trees had been removed.  Recently, we returned for another view of the cemetery.  This is where the Anne Dudley Bradstreet memorial is.  Note: Wikipedia's information for Andover has a lot of historical information as well as an impressive list of well-known former residents.

NOTE On October 17, 2013, I received notice of a research report about this cemetery. It includes all names, dates, location and links to the FindAGrave photos! Once on the Research Report, scroll down to the link for website and database.
