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.

They Met at a College

My father in Evanston, Illinois about to attend Union College in New York.
1938
Written on the back of the photo, by my grandmother.

The lady on the end was my mother's good friend. They saw each other for many years.

1942
I have no idea whose writing this is, but I suspect it was my grandmother's.

How different students dress today. Can you imagine seeing a male student on campus in a coat and tie. Even back in my day on campus, I often wore a dress and low heels to class.

It is fun looking back to their old days. In a way, I wished people still dressed like that, but this is a different era.

Don't you just wish every snapshot had such a good identification on the back? Your granny did good!
