Using Google Maps To Document Where Your Family Lived

I’ve written about this before, but I want to show you another example of my ancestor’s homes using family photos and documenting them with Google maps. This time it’s for my Emil... That's not all, read on!

Trees for Lafayette

This is not to complain–I know lots of good Salem people are working on this–but rather to offer some perspective: Salem’s grand boulevard Lafayette Street needs some trees (and some love). This is the route on which I walk to work...

Salem 1912

I stumbled across the “first annual” Report of the Salem Plans Commission the other day, and read it with rapt attention. This was issued at the end of 1912, a time when the city’s population had experienced rapid growth and housing...

Christmas in Salem 2014
