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 -- I Don't Want to Follow Them

Why I ever decided to subscribe to World Vital Records, I wish I knew.  It was just about a year ago, and I assumed I would use it along with several other subscriptions for aiding in my genealogy research.  I've nothing against the company, it was just that blogging got in the way.  My research time was cut way back.


Last week, I received a call from the company, and was asked if I wanted to renew.  When I replied, "no" that is when I was asked a number of questions.  I held my breath and even offered the bit of information, I hoped was true. I said, I hadn't used it in almost a year.  Well, I was right, she had the exact date!  No secrets there. So, with my "no thank you," I think that means a "maybe we can change her mind."  For the past week, I've received the following emails from them.   (I realize the dates don't show below, but they are daily, and two for today.)

Is there anybody who thinks I should reconsider?
