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.

We peeked in and through a lot of windows, and admired the scenery.

Boston Harbor 16 miles
 Along the Battle Road Trail (above and below).
The above photos were taken along the Battle Road Trail in Concord, Massachusetts. See Minute Man National Park. The walking trail, a little over 5 miles begins at the Visitor's Center and ends at Miriam's Corner, see my first photo, and the one below. I walked about two miles, and these photos are what we saw.
