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.

Wordless Wednesday -- Share and Share Alike

The photos of Mary Jane Westover and her husband, James Albert Ryckman were sent to me by Jeannie Slater, after she found a cemetery photo of mine on Find-A-Grave recently. On that site, I have a statement where I allow anybody permission to copy my photos, and they don’t have to ask. I’ve learned it’s better to share, if you don’t you could be limiting yourself from receiving from others.

Jeannie wrote me, we exchanged information and, in-turn, has allowed me to share her photos. I have over 900 Westovers in my tree, and I'm hoping to place Mary Jane Westover into it, and maybe Jeannie and I will be related.
