The Bungalow at Short Beach, Branford, CT
-- from the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume I (1895). This odd bit of
social history was clearly relevant 116 years ago to the sophisticated readers
of this magazine. Today it is a bit hard to connect to much beyond the
geography. 11+ pages with photographs; download now for $2.75.
Grove Street Cemetery in New Haven -- from
the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume II (1896). This article, by Ellen
Strong Bartlett, describes the cemetery, provides its history as well as

photos of monuments. 12+ pages, PDF format. Download now for $2.75.
Some Colonial Houses of New Haven -- from
the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume II (1896).
An interesting article about New
Haven in Colonial times, focusing on the residential architecture but going
beyond it, by Harry H. Palmer. It includes photographs of the following
houses: Trowbridge (2), Beecher, Wooster, Arnold, Bontecou, Foote, Pinto, and
Hillhouse, and one of the parsonage of the “Blue Meeting House.” It’s certainly
interesting for those with ties to those families, and to those interested in
Colonial New Haven. PDF format, 8+ pages, download now for $2.00.
Center Church in New Haven -- from the
Connecticut Quarterly, Volume III (1897).
Ellen Strong Bartlett wrote this
extensively illustrated article about the original church of the New Haven
Colony; not surprisingly, the history of this church is interlaced extensively
with the history of that colony. Notable in the article are the illustrations
of many of the memorial tablets in the church, and a number of photographs of
the crypt. PDF format, 19+ pages, download now for $3.00.
The Wolcott Plateau -- from the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume III
(1897). Located at the north end of New Haven
County, the Town of Wolcott has always been considered a bit on the
primitive side, and this short article, by Milo Leon Norton, does little
to dispel that impression. PDF format, 7+ pages, download now for
Hodgkin (Hotchkin) of Guilford, CT and his Descendents by
Geoffrey Brown (1988).
This volume was our
principal partner’s first venture into publishing history and genealogy,
when he (and a lot of very capable relatives) collaborated to produce
this genealogy. Two rather small printings sold out, and with that, the
author decided that enough was enough and to move on to other things.
Because people continue to request it, we have decided to add an
electronic version. In PDF format, 330+ pages, download now for $9.50.
