What a maze. I’m trying to document in particular the ancestors who came to America. Born in England and came to New England – Boston, Connecticut – in the 1600’s. There is a lot of information there – lots of documentation, lots of cemeteries! Trying to get my head around it all is a bit mind-boggling to say the least. I sometimes feel as if I am reinventing the wheel.
This illustration reflects a time in the 1800’s but the spirit of adventure is the same as that of 200 years prior. And the Sperry family was among my ancestors who came to New Haven Connecticut in the 1600’s.
