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.

Bolton Public Library, Bolton, Massachusetts -- Genealogy and History Section

I absolutely loved the Bolton Public Library! My husband and I go past this at least 3-4 times a year, either on our way to the Tower Hill Botanic Garden or to check out cemeteries in the Lancaster, MA area. Wait until you see the inside.
Original library erected 1903, expanded in 2009.

Entering the Whitcomb History Room, old safe on the left.



Lovely reading room below.

A list of all the libraries, with genealogy departments, I've visited in New England and New York is below. All are linked to my posts.
