Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have enjoyed searching my family's history since I was 14 years old. It has brought me to some wonderful places and I have met some great people along the way. My travels have taken me from New Hampshire, Maine, all of New England, to California (and in between), to Scotland, Wales and England. I take pride in verifying and documenting my findings. Some of my family names are: Purington / Purrington /Puddington (all variations of the name, Pray, Cheney, Hoitt / Hoyt, Littlefield, Bradbury, Wentworth, Boston, Blaisdell, Webster, Dustin, Brewster, and too many others to mention. Most of these names can be traced to Maine, anywhere from Hallowell / Machias, Phippsburg, Harpswell, to Old Orchard / Wells, York to the Berwicks....also in New Hampshire, from Dover, Portsmouth, Barrington to the seacoast. From Massachusetts, Plymouth Rock, Boston, Haverhill. To England, Wales, Scotland, France, Denmark and back.

The memorials I have created are those that are directly related to me.(except the "Fernalds") In some cases going back 12 to 14 generations. Most however are within 5 generations.... I don't go around and snap photos of cemetery gates or entrances just for the fun of it......
This is fun and meant to be enjoyable, for I have always believed that "one does not know where one is going, until one has known where one has been"....our ancestors tell us that, and more if we watch, learn and listen.

Hi,
Thanks for adding George and adding the information in his memorial. I saw a news release that he was added to the NH ODM.
Genealogy is a hobby (perhaps an obsession for 15 years). I usually stick to my wife's and my families but thought I would research George's to see if there were any living relatives.

I have a full subscription to Ancestry.com, use RootsMagic to create reports and compile databases. I share genealogy information, except that for the living or recently dead (which I keep on my computer).

Be more than happy to correspond or talk about this. I have few questions based upon an hour or so of research, prior to seeing your entry in Find a Grave.
