Greetings from Boston!

It's my first time visiting the city that I will call home for the next few years. Tomorrow I have orientation at school, Simmons College. Yesterday and today I wondered around the city. Most of the today was spend in NEHGS. I spent some time going through a county history for Scioto Co., Ohio and the probate indexes for Worcester Co., Mass. Since tomorrow they have extended hours, I plan on going back after orientation to look at the actual probate books (well, the microfilms of them). 

This is the first grave stone I've seen that uses the double date. In the Grannay Burial Ground.

The difference between the history in Los Angeles and Boston is dramatic. In LA there's a few buildings that date to the 18th century, all of which are adobe. Here in Boston, I love the old stone and brick buildings among the modern steel and glass ones. I think I took 100 pictures of just the architecture.
