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.

Harriet Beecher Stowe -- Houses and Cemetery Plot

Hartford, Connecticut
While on a tour of the house, I asked where she was buried. Was quite surprised to learn that she was buried just a few towns away from me. The following day, we went to the cemetery, then two days later, while on a trip to Maine, my husband remembered where she lived in Brunswick, Maine, so of course we went there. That house looks unoccupied, and in dire need of repairs.
I was there the day of the 200th Birthday Celebration for Harriet Beecher Stowe. Horse rides, music and entertainment as well as free cake were available to all.
