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.

Two for One Regarding the Wayside Inn

This is a two for one posting. Last week a friend wrote a wonderful post and I'm sharing it here for you to read. You'll be glad you did. Diane Boumenot does a superb job with her blog called, One Rhode Island Family. Please read her "Buckley Parmenter and The Wayside Inn" post HERE.

I decided to re-post my blog from three years ago, because I think some of you might have missed it.

On April 15, 1972, I attended a wedding in Sudbury, Massachusetts. The above menu is from that day. Yesterday, April 24, 2010, my husband and I went to the Sudbury Inn and ate there. They still serve the Yankee Pot Roast and Chicken Pot Pie, both are still delicious (prices much higher though).
The Inn / Restaurant shown above.
"Longfellow's Wayside Inn is proud to be the oldest operating Inn in the country, offering comfort and hospitality to travelers along the Boston Post Road since 1716." 
Revolutionary War events still taking place.
The wedding in 1972 was held at the Martha-Mary Chapel, just feet from the Inn.  Movie lovers may have see the Chapel on film, as it has been in many movies, including a few coming out this year.
Across the street is a beautiful, still working grist mill.
