Connecticut: history and genealogy

Connecticut history and genealogy

Connecticut is where Between the Lakes Group is located, so we have been developing our Connecticut collection for years now.  Some is available on CD-ROM, while much more is available as downloads.  While our collection emphasizes Litchfield County (where we're located) we have material on all the Connecticut counties and continue to acquire more:

Fairfield County   Hartford County   Litchfield County   Middlesex County   New Haven County   New London County   Tolland County   Windham County    Connecticut miscellany

Our currently available Connecticut history and genealogy titles include the following:

DOWNLOADS and CD-ROMs about Connecticut:

Litchfield County

 

Salisbury, CT  Abstract of Early Land Records

This article abstracts some of the more historically significant early land records.  See our Salisbury page for more information.

 

Salisbury, Connecticut:  The Early Years  Salisbury, CT: early years

by Judith M. Sherman.  An analytical overview of the years of Salisbury's settlement.  See our Salisbury page for more information.

 

Land Speculation in Salisbury, CT (1739 – 1761)   Salisbury, CT - Land Speculation, by Judith M. Sherman  

by Judith M. Sherman (1990).  In addition to the importance of this master's thesis in the history of Salisbury, it also marked a trend in historiography that was only beginning to appear in local history when it was written in 1990: quantitative analysis based on early records.  See our Salisbury page for more information.

 

Ancient History Notebook (1910) - Canaan High School.  First publication of Ancient History Notebook, Canaan HS

by Kenneth C. Hart.  In addition to its role documenting the times when Canaan had its own High School, it also documents in great and legible detail what a high school freshman was expected to know of ancient history back in those times.  If you were fortunate enough to study ancient history in school (a subject rarely taught except in private schools anymore, unfortunately) you will recognize immediately how thorough an understanding of the histories of Greece and Rome was considered necessary for a high school graduate to possess back in those days.  It is really rather daunting!  See the Canaan section of our Litchfield County, CT page for more information.

Lakeville Horse Show Program (1964).   The Lakeville Horse Show, back in these days, was an important regional horse show. The advertisements in the program reflect a time when the Northwest Corner of Connecticut was a different place.  See our Salisbury page for more information.

New Milford: 230 Years   A CD-ROM including several items.  See our New Milford page for more information

Scrap Book of North Canaan  Includes the book that lends its title to the CD-ROM, but also includes additional North Canaan information.  See our North Canaan page for more information

Lime Rock: an illustrated walking tour  We conducted a walking tour of this historic hamlet a few years ago.  This CD is based on a PowerPoint presentation  we had prepared for those who were not up to the walk, supplemented with additional information, maps, and photographs. See our Lime Rock page for more information

Lime Rock Cemetery  -- an old plot map of the Lime Rock Cemetery.  See our Lime Rock Cemetery page for more information.

 

Winsted: The Gilbert School, 1929 - 30.  A school catalog with lists of students, faculty, and alumni for this unique public/private school.  See our Winsted/Winchester page for more information.

 

Litchfield -- an article about the community from the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume II (1896).  Please see our Town of Litchfield page for more information.

 

Convention Troops in Connecticut -- some Revolutionary War history from the Connecticut Quarterly (1897).  Of particular interest to those studying the Norfolk CT area.  6+ pages, PDF format, download now for $1.75.   

Convention Troops in CT

A Tour to Historic Places in the Town of Winchester  The full title of this booklet is “A tour to places of historic interest in the Town of Winchester made as part of the observance of the Connecticut tercentenary August 31, 1935”.  There’s a remarkable amount of history here.  It appears to have been collected from the remarks of many local citizens with special knowledge of local events and institutions, made during an automobile tour of the Town of Winchester. See our Winsted/Winchester page for more information.

 

Winsted Green and its Neighborhood  (1800 – 1840) By Emily Perkins Roberts.  This 1935 booklet traces the history of the Winsted Green – now the area of downtown Winsted opposite Northwestern Connecticut Community College – and the area surrounding it. See our Winsted/Winchester page for more information.

 

--Introductory information and index from Orcutt’s History of Torrington, Connecticut (1878).   See our Torrington page for more information.  (FREE)

 

John Brown: From Torrington to Harpers Ferry  from Orcutt’s History of Torrington, Connecticut (1878).  John Brown, Torrington’s most famous – perhaps notorious – son, was the subject of a lengthy biography in the town history. Today, of course, someone who did what he did -- seize a Federal military installation by force of arms and encourage armed insurrection by a portion of the population  – would fall under the classification of “terrorist”.   (Download)    See our Torrington page for more information.

 

Salisbury, Litchfield County, CT   An 1898 article from the Connecticut Quarterly. See our Salisbury page for more information.

 

History of the Salisbury Town Hall, by Malcolm D. Rudd (1916) See our Salisbury page for more information.

Salisbury: Old Section of the New Cemetery (1916) from the Historical Collections of the Salisbury Association, Volume II.  This 46+ page compilation of the oldest section of the so-called "New Cemetery" (the one located on Route 41 just north of Salisbury village provides records that will be of use to many who came to Salisbury a bit too late for the smaller and older cemeteries around the township (published separately). A section at the end identifies Civil War veterans buried in this ground as well as some buried elsewhere.  See our Salisbury page for more information.

 

Torrington in Wartimes  from Orcutt’s History of Torrington, Connecticut (1878).  This section from that book – Chapter 18, Wartimes – covers the American Revolution and the Civil War, and has added material about the efforts on the home front, as well as on special topics such as women in the wars.  Not confined to lists of muster rolls (although these are included) it is useful for anyone with an interest in either of these wars and their impact in rural New England.  See our Torrington page for more information.

 

History of the Winsted Savings Bank.  This 1935 booklet traces the history of the Winsted Savings Bank from its foundation in 1860 until the year of publication, and along the way includes a fair amount of the history of Winsted and Winchester as well.  See our Winsted/Winchester page for more information.

 

Churches of Torrington  From Orcutt’s History of Torrington, Connecticut (1878). Here are four chapters:  Chapter 4, Religions Privileges; Chapter 6, Torrington Church; Chapter 7, Torringford Church; and Chapter 11, the Churches in Wolcottville. See our Torrington page for more information.

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.  See our New Haven County page for more information.

 

John 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.  See our New Haven County page for more information.

 

Some Colonial Houses of New Haven -- from the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume II (1896).  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.”  See our New Haven County page for more information.

Ellington, Tolland County, CT -- an 1898 article from the Connecticut Quarterly.  Please see our Tolland County page for more information.

 

Delegates' Reports: CT Board of Agriculture (1869) -- The report from the Tolland County delegate begins on page 26 of this document.  See our Connecticut miscellany page for more information.

 

The Banner for 1932, Yearbook of Rockville High School, Rockville, CT -- An interesting combination of literary magazine and high school yearbook, providing a more nuanced view of class members than usual yearbooks of this period.  Please see our Tolland County page for more information.

 


 

Windham County 

 

Picturesque Pomfret -- from the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume II (1896).  See our Windham County page for more information.

 

Town of Thompson 1925 Annual Report.  This example of a Connecticut township annual report is quite remarkable because it appears to have also served as the high school yearbook -- something we've not seen elsewhere.  We suppose that anyone interested in the history of the town, or who had ancestors who interacted with the town government, would find it of interest.   See our Windham County page for more information.

We have additional Connecticut material that doesn't readily classify by county.  To view this material, please CLICK HERE to view our Connecticut Miscellany page

 

Connecticut titles we own but haven't scheduled:

 

The History of Ridgefield, Conn. by Daniel W. Teller and other material.  (1878). 251 pages.  It's a bit long for a download, but a bit short for an entire CD-ROM.  We may publish it in sections as two or three downloads; let us know of your interest so we can prioritize it appropriately.  

 

The Copper Industry in Connecticut.   More information about copper mining in CT.

Souvenir History of the New England Southern Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Volume II, Norwich District. (1897)   300+ pages.  By Rennetts C. Miller.  While Congregational histories of portions of Connecticut are fairly common, and Episcopal histories are not unusual, Methodist ones are rare.  This one covers the eastern half of the State (everything east of the Connecticut River, plus a small portion of Rhode Island) and does so in considerable detail.  It includes a historical sketch of each church, the camp meeting associations, the Epworth League, the social unions, 400 pictures of churches, parsonages, pastors, pastors' wives, Sunday School superintendents, prominent laymen, etc., as well as capsule biographies of pastors.  We think this will be useful to many people who have been frustrated by lack of information about ancestors who didn't happen to belong to the established church in CT.  Possibly a series of downloads?

 

History of Torrington, Connecticut.  By the Rev. Samuel Orcutt (1878). 817 pages, including original index of names. This book is a classic Connecticut town history and replete with lots of biographies and genealogy.  We're currently adding chapters of this volume for download.  See our Torrington page for more information.

 

Litchfield Book of Days.  by George C. Boswell (1899).  221 pages (including an index), plus pictures, plus 18 pages of advertisements.   This little book is organized by the calendar -- an incident of Litchfield history (sometimes more than one) is selected for each day of the year and is memorialized in a short essay.   A necessary part of the library of anyone doing research on Litchfield, or any of the notables that town produced in the early days.  Also, it's pleasant to read.  If we make this a CD-ROM, we'll include some of the material we collected for publication of Alain White's History of Litchfield but didn't have room for on that CD-ROM, and we'll prioritize this project based on response to our re-publication of  White's History, for which this book was one of the sources. Or, perhaps, we'll issue this one as a somewhat lengthy download!

 

John Hodgkin of Guilford, CT and his descendants, second edition.  CLICK HERE for more information.

 

Twin Lakes -- present and past  Now that Twin Lakes has been "discovered" and we see the old houses vanishing before our eyes, we've considered preparing a CD-ROM about the history (and present) of our home base, Twin Lakes, CT.  More information about Twin Lakes.

 

Life of Hon. Phineas T. Barnum  by Joel Benton (1891).  621 pages.  This is a not-particularly-rare book about a Connecticut original.  Did you know that P.T. Barnum once ran for Congress -- and that he was defeated by his own third cousin, William H. Barnum of Lime Rock? Again, this is currently not on our list of high priorities.  Tell us if you want to see it soon.

 

Program for the 27th annual Lakeville Horse Show (1964).  72 pages -- a future download.

 

A New History of Trinity Lime Rock  Since our principal partner is also Parish Historian of Trinity Episcopal Church in Lime Rock, it goes without saying that there is a new parish history in the works.  This will be the second parish history (the first was written in 1949, and is re-published on our Lime Rock: a Walking Tour CD-ROM -- for which a portion of the sale price of each copy is donated to Trinity).  We'll continue the practice of donating a portion of the purchase price to Trinity for this one as well, once it's available.

We plan to include in it considerable scholarship, including material about the 1883 "Crucifix Wars" of which the New York Times made so much, information about the Barnum and Richardson families and the historic iron industry, and the role of Trinity in the community, that was not included in the earlier history.  By going back to primary sources, we've discovered that there is a certain amount of what we politely refer to as "folklore" in the earlier history, so this will also correct some longstanding misconceptions.   It's difficult to say when this will be published, but there is a good possibility that a limited edition will appear in hard cover before it goes to CD-ROM.  We're actively collecting information for this venture, so if you happen to have any to offer, please let us know.

We have sections with additional information about the following:

Beckley Furnace -- Connecticut's only Industrial Monument -- and the Friends of Beckley Furnace. 

Here's a free article about the history of Canaan, CT from the Connecticut Quarterly, Volume I.

The Historic Upper Housatonic Iron DistrictWe've got some new links for you here, including new photos from the Beckley Furnace.

The Canaan/Falls Village Historical Society.  Good people, good programs, and lots of history to share.

Place names in Litchfield County that have changed  -- our own compilation. FREE!

At the present time we're assisting Trinity Church (known as "The Church that Iron Built"), located in Lime Rock (a hamlet of Salisbury) with overflow historic material from their website.   See this collection of Lime Rock historical material, and to see a CD we created from material gathered in the course of running a history walk in that historic hamlet!
