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.

Wordless Wednesday -- The Survey



The small newspaper clipping to the left of my computer is an USA Today survey of almost 8,000 people. The question, "Do you have paper files from more than a year ago on your desk?" The question was asked to employees. The results were: 51% said "Yes" 49% said "No."
I'm not an employee, but looked at my area; on top of desk, below, and at the small desk holding my printer (top, middle and floor area) and found I had several notes on Christmas pads, and stuff from over two years ago. About 70% of the papers are over a year.  One of these days, I'll tackle them. Now, how is your genealogy area looking?
Note:  I will not show my dining room table or my spare room where most of my files are.
