  1. The Londonderry Leach Public library, in Londonderry, New Hampshire

  2. what agreat idea! I would suggest the Midwest Genealogy Center in Independence, Missouri:

  3. Interesting blog post subject. I checked my library and although they have a great twitter and facebook presence, they do not have a blog. By the way, do you have a personal connection to Bristol, Connecticut, home of Little League and my mother's family?
