Suffield, CT: history

Suffield, Connecticut History

Suffield: Quarter Millennial PLUS is available now.  Scroll down or Order Suffield: Quarter Millennial PLUS for information about how to purchase this collection of history and genealogy.

Suffield: Quarter Millennial PLUS is a CD-ROM of documents of historical and genealogical interest from and about the Town of Suffield, Hartford County, CT. 

A few of the items are quite rare.

The collection includes the following Suffield items:

1. Celebration of the Two Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary of the Settlement of Suffield Connecticut, October 12, 13, and 14, 1920, with sketches from its past and some record of its last half century and of its present.  253 pages, plus our new 35 page index. 

Suffield history book: front cover

Originally published 1921 by the authority of the General Executive Committee.  The alternative name of this book is Suffield Quarter Millenial We have scanned and indexed this 253 page book of history (text and pictures) as the original book contained no index at all, although the book contains a wealth of names which should be of particular interest to people researching family history and genealogy in the Suffield area.  We think our index is a major improvement.  Indexing took a long time, and we appreciate your patience -- and the  encouragement you gave us -- while we slogged through the process!  Please Surnames appearing in the Suffield Quarter Millennial book to see an extract of all of the Suffield surnames that appear in the new index.

The book is a wonderful historical compendium not only of what happened at Suffield's 250th anniversary (including the programs for the Suffield Pageant, the Hostess House, and other portions of the celebration -- we've seen these small sections of this book selling in the $15 - $35 range on eBay recently), but also lists of Suffield veterans of all wars through World War I, a lengthy history of Suffield (it's interesting that Suffield was in its early years part of Massachusetts), specifics about many of Suffield's stock of great old houses, the Suffield School (formerly the Connecticut Literary Institution), local businesses, professionals, and organizations, and a wealth of other minutiae that would be impossible to assemble today.  The book includes many historical photographs, both of individuals and of buildings.  We've included the photos in their original places in the book, but have also included them  separately as high-resolution scans for those who wish to reproduce them and perhaps frame them.

2.  The 1948 Sagitta, the yearbook of Suffield High School.  This historical volume contains 56 pages with abundant photographs, plus many autographs.   We've developed a list of the surnames that appear in this volume and are happy to provide it here for your reference.
