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.

Surname Saturday -- HARRIS

Harris is a rather common surname, yet I only have two direct lines in my tree. However, there are 122 in my database because of my interest in this family. Viola wrote me quite a few years ago, asking for some help with her family, I didn't have much to offer, and again she wrote the other day. In checking my file, I was surprised to see that 120 Harris's weren't mine, but hers. The family is from the Stanbridge E., Dunham and Frelighsburg all towns in Canada, near Vermont, and several Vermont towns of my ancestors, many of the allied surnames are familiar, and a few settled in the city where I now live. Based on all these criteria, I'm posting Viola's lineage for my Surname Saturday, with hopes somebody else share's her line.
