My Travels Recently: Massachusetts Meanderings and more....!

In the month of April 2011, I traveled to Massachusetts and Connecticut in search of my ancestors and I visited a great many cemeteries.

My blog Massachusetts Meanderings and more is about this trip and it will also include the "more" eventually.

Old Hazardville Cemetery in Enfield, CT

In the blog I describe my visits to these cemeteries.  Some were just quick stops where I just drove into the cemetery, took photos and studied the overall design of the cemetery and the size.  I did not get too specific because I did not have time. 

The cemeteries that were of major importance to me I lingered and described my experience in more detail. I did not show all my photos on the blog posts because I was traveling and that would take a great amount of time.  So I have uploaded to my public Picasa Web Albums more photos of these cemeteries.
I have not placed any restrictions on the photos but I do ask that you give me credit if you find something of interest. 

UPDATE 7/10/2012:  Apparently I have to embed each web album into the blog post.  This would take a great deal of time.  So I suggest that search for various cemeteries via the Massachusetts Meanderings Blog categories and search box.  At some point I will link these cemeteries photos, but they will be linked on the Solomon Goss Blog when I get to discussing that cemetery. 

As for burial listings for various cemeteries I found Find A Grave helpful but not always complete.  I sourced books that I had on these cemeteries for more research in the various posts on the particular cemeteries.  On the right of the blog are links that can be very helpful so check them out.
