Genealogy reading – I’ve already read Mobility & Migration, now the other 2 books by Roger Thompson.  I am forging ahead with my identification and study of my early immigrant ancestors.  Most of them came to Massachusetts and Connecticut as part of The Great Migration, 1620-1640.  An exciting time in English and American history.

I seem to be fascinated by these – works of art.  Here are 2 more I found recently in my genealogy research.
