Friday Finds

My research focus this week has been my Connecticut ancestors, including the WEBSTER, HOPKINS, JUDD, BRONSON, GRAVES, and LEWIS lines.  Fortunately there are some good references available, which I will share in today’s Friday Finds column.

BOOK  Lucius Barnes Barbour, Families of Early Hartford, Connecticut (Baltimore, Maryland: Genealogical Pub. Co., 1977) – Fortunately this book is available at my local genealogy library, but I also purchased it (along with other books) on the CD collection Connecticut Local and Family Histories available from Genealogical.com.

DATABASE / INDEX  Connecticut Town Marriage Records, pre-1870 (Barbour Collection), Connecticut Town Birth Records, pre-1870 (Barbour Collection), and Connecticut Town Death Records, pre-1870 (Barbour Collection) [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: The Generations Network, Inc., 2006.  These databases are based on the index, The Barbour Collection of Connecticut Town Vital Records Vol. 1-55 compiled by Lorraine Cook White (Baltimore, Maryland: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1994-2002).  They are available through Ancestry.com (with subscription).

WEBSITE  The Graves Family Association – A collection of information pertaining to the GRAVES surname.  I was lucky enough to have found a family tree for George GRAVES, my twelfth great-grandfather.
