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.

Westover, A New Branch To Me -- Surname Saturday

During the past several months, I've been working with several individuals on their lines. One was for the Westover surname. The reason Jack Westover contacted me was because he saw my RootsWeb site had over 1,000 of that surname. I was delighted when he offered to share his Amasa's lineage, since I didn't have anything more than just the name. Jack is allowing me to share and hopefully, it will help somebody. Amasa's father, Moses was my 5th great-grandfather, and was both a Revolutionary War Patriot from Massachusetts who became a Loyalist and settled in Quebec, Canada. (Moses is listed below as the father to Amasa.)
