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.

Hough of Massachusetts and Connecticut -- Surname Saturday

This register report is my 130th entry for Surname Saturday. I've decided not to bold my direct lines, but you can see them because they are in All Caps. This early New England family came from England, lived in Massachusetts, and my direct line migrated to Connecticut. As in the past, I'll share my sources, if you want them.

If you want to look at all my surnames already posted, look on the right side and scroll down to my list of Surnames.
