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.
