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.

Lillie Or Lilley -- Surname Saturday



The Lillie / Lilley surname has always been a favorite of mine even though I don't share a direct line. Over the years, several people have contacted me because they saw I had a Scrambling connection. I have over 600 individuals in my tree with that surname. There are some blanks to be filled in, in this tree but perhaps some of what I have might be of use to a person working on the descendants of Roswell Lillie. This family began in Vermont, and ended up in New York, Louisiana, and Michigan.
