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.

Putnam of Massachusetts -- Surname Saturday

The Putnam line is another old Massachusetts line of mine. The emigrant ancestor, John Putnam was my 9th great-grandfather. As usual, my direct lines are in All Caps and in green. If you would like sources, please contact me. Once the snow melts, I look forward to taking photos of the memorial markers for John, his wife, and his son and wife. For now, you can view them on FindAGrave and may be seen HERE.

Another cousin connection! I descend from John Putnam and Priscilla Gould, too, through their son Nathaniel Putnam who married Elizabeth Hutchinson.
