Up and running full force

My new website New England Roots is up and running.

I have posted both my Maternal and Paternal surnames. all my Where in the State is Mom town trivia, and slideshows have been transferred to the site.

I will make every effort to post to the Blog at least weekly. You know that I'm an inconsistent blogger. I will try to do better.

Check out my site. All feedback is welcome.

Very nice, Jane!  I have some New Hampshire connections in my husband's tree, I think, but they are far enough back that I haven't explored those lines yet. (I need to do more work in Vermont as well.)  I look forward to reading more about your family, whenever the posts are ready. :)

Wonderful Volunteer Project at the First Parish Burying Ground, Newbury MA

Thank you to the great volunteers who have been working at restoring the First Parish Burying Ground, Newbury MA. Now they are beginning to photograph the grave stones.
I see at least two of my ancestors stones and I didn't get past two of the photographs they posted.
I can't wait to see the other names.

New Hampshire History and Photos.
Here is a great interactive site to read about Historical New Hampshire. You can even add your own favorites. I was going to add Castle in the Clouds photo below. They have a nicer one already there.
Come tour New Hampshire with me at http://nhdhr.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Viewer/index.html?appid=539d068631644a47aea42fb61b718237

Here is an unknown male Nelson born in Dover, New Hampshire to Louis Nelson and Mary Anderson on 14 Oct __. I found this on Ancestry. I hope this helps someone find their ancestor.

Their descendants will be honored and thankful they are part of such a family. 
A high school principal was brought to tears when the senior class unanimously decided to give up their class trip to donate nearly $8,000 to her medical care.

Friends, family and ancestors came together on my recent visit to the New England Telephone Museum. 
My Unexpected Repository find.

Memories came flooding back for my friends as they looked around the museum. I learned many new thing about they past and about mine.

I found ancestors I didn't expect to find. I will go back at my leisure to review those clues.

My latest blog post is about keeping an open mind when traveling around around. You never know when you find an unexpected repository of information about your ancestors.

One of my great-aunts was an early telephone operator.  Being able to go to a museum like this would be a tremendous opportunity to learn more about what she might have done.

Here is a snippet I captured on Family Search BYU Relative Finder. Research is a definite MUST. I question how William Carr born 1648 can have a son, Benjamin born 1592.
