7 CD: History of the Town of Goshen, Connecticut
A.G. Hibbard
(1897), 2004, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and Mac, index, 640 pp, Heritage Books
This narrative account of a small New England town (corrected and enlarged by the author) begins with the arrival of its settlers in 1726 and concludes with marriage entries from 1896. Deacon Lewis Mills Norton preserved the first 100 years of Goshen's existence with personal recollections, data from church records, trade ledgers, land grants, school enrollment, and conscription lists, augmented by delightful anecdotes and accounts of Indian raids, and Revolutionary and Civil wars events. The town's first citizens, military records, public employees, religious leaders, physicians, lawyers, teachers, tradesmen, and genealogies of early Goshen families: Baldwin, Bartholomew, Beach, Brooks, Buell, Collins, Cook, Gaylord, Griswold, Hall, Humphrey, Ives, Lewis, Lucas, Lyman, Merwin, Miles, Norton, Thompson, Towner and many more are included. Photographs and illustrations, the original subject index and a new full name index enhance this work. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.

The author has provided two slightly different accounts of this conflict while Redding's involvement in the Civil War is documented in excerpts from town meetings. Includes biographical sketches.

10 CD: History of Wallingford, Connecticut
Charles Henry Stanley Davis, M.D.
(1870), 2007, CD, Graphic Images, Searchable, Adobe, v6, PC and Mac, 995 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
This volume covers two hundred years of history with the purpose of portraying "the lives and actions of our puritan ancestors. They came to find an asylum for religious liberty…They found few helps and many hindrances to their growth and prosperity in a foreign land and under foreign rule, and they therefore undertook to rear a church and found a colony at the same time in the wilderness, whose vital principle should be the religious ideas for whose sake they had resigned the honors and braved the power of the English crown…The design of Local History is to preserve the memory of local events and enterprise; to record the manners and customs, the character and services, the sacrifices, the toils and the sufferings of our father; to glean from old records and family traditions, material which has been passed over by the historians of the State and country." In addition to the history, this volume contains biographies and genealogies as well as illustrations to highlight important places and to portray prominent citizens. A surname index and a genealogy index are included.

12 CD: A Digest of the Early Connecticut Probate Records. Volumes 1-3, 1635-1750
Charles William Manwaring
2002, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and Mac, 2228 pp, Heritage Books
Now on CD-ROM! The purpose of this digest is to “preserve the essential part of these Probate Records; to arrange them in form to be more available for reference; to arrest their constant wear and rapidly accelerating destruction; to marshal the parents and children of these early families by name, place, and collateral relationship, with incidental historical matter, giving volume, page and date for reference to the original writings; with a copious index in a book the reader may hold in hand, whether living near or remote from Hartford.” “Volume I contains a list showing the changes made in the different Probate Districts of Connecticut from the beginning, and also what towns were comprised by them at every change. This list is of inestimable value as a time and money saver to those engaged in the work of tracing their ancestry, as well as to professional genealogists.” Volumes I-III are made up of the first fifteen original volumes of Probate Records, including wills, inventories, distributions of estates and Court Records. All three volumes include indexes of both estates and names. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index.

Lists and Returns of Connecticut Men in the Revolution, 1775-1783, Connecticut Historical Society Staff,


15 Lists and Returns of Connecticut Men in the Revolution, 1775-1783
Connecticut Historical Society Staff,
(1909), 2008, 5½x8½, paper, index, 502 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
This is intended to supplement what has previously been published in Rolls and List of Connecticut Men in the Revolution, 1775-1783 and Records of Service of Connecticut Men in the War of the Revolution, 1775-1783. “The major part of this volume, as its title might indicate, is composed of officially written lists and returns of soldiers who were serving in the Continental regiments of the ‘Connecticut Line.’ There are also some rolls of companies in service which had not previously been printed, particularly in 1782 and 1783...Its chief value will be found to consist in the addition in the case of a great majority of the soldiers, of the name of the town from which the soldier came. This will supply much sought for information, and in many cases will doubtless serve to identify the soldier”. Information often includes: name, town of residence, date of enlistment or detachment, company, regiment, and duration of service. The records are arranged chronologically. This work was originally published as the Collections of the Connecticut Historical Society Volume 12. Citied in the Harvard Guide to American History.

Connecticut’s Pennsylvania “Colony”: Susquehanna Company Proprietors, Settlers and Claimants, Volume 1 The Proprietors, Donna Bingham Munger


16 Connecticut’s Pennsylvania “Colony”: Susquehanna Company Proprietors, Settlers and Claimants, Volume 1 The Proprietors
Donna Bingham Munger
2007, 8½x11, paper, alphabetical, 228 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Proprietors, settlers and claimants from New England bought land located in Pennsylvania from the Connecticut based Susquehanna Company and disappeared from legal records for as many as fifty years or more. The author, previously the Chief of the Division of Land Records at the Pennsylvania State Archives, has compiled a complete database of these proprietors, settlers and claimants in a three volume series. Over 5,000 families were involved. Volume I: The Proprietors provides an overview and database of information about Company proprietors or shareholders as found in the Susquehanna Company Minute and Account Books. These manuscript volumes record deeds from the Company to share purchasers and conveyances along the chain of title. Each deed usually cites grantor and grantee residence, amount paid, size of the share transferred, location if actual real estate, execution and recording dates and special comments. As informative as the Account Books are, they do not give a complete picture of actual settlers along the Susquehanna River at any one time. To understand that scene, a researcher would need to consult a host of different lists in various archives and secondary publications. Volume II: The Settlers makes the task of searching multiple sources manageable and the information understandable by merging thirty-two lists of settlers into one database. The sources begin with a deposition recalling the names of thirteen of the first Susquehanna Company settlers in June 1762 and end with 1,150 names on a November 1801 petition to the United States Congress asking for additional consideration and relief. In between, the lists range from the names of thirty-one of the “First Forty” present and arrested at Wyoming in March 1769, to a list of the proprietors of the first five townships in June 1770, and tax lists for 1776-1780. For each person named in a list the database cites date and place present. Many individuals appear on several of the lists. Volume III: The Claimants presents proprietors and settlers who claimed and received Pennsylvania title to their tracts. This particular database draws upon Pennsylvania state land records and includes the names of those who drew lots in the certified townships as well as a chain of title to the claimant. Many drawers and claimants were original Susquehanna Company proprietors. Others were descendants of original proprietors and their chain of title usually includes familial relationships. Several claimants were land speculators who bought lots from settlers who could not afford to become claimants.

Ernest E. Rogers
(1933), reprint, 5½x8½, paper, index, 428 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
New London's fine location, with a harbor seven miles long and a mile wide, was the perfect place for the young American Navy to send out its first expedition in 1775. Nathaniel Shaw, a prominent merchant, became the Naval Agent. Many of his papers and letters are contained in this work. These letters, from the Shaw collection at Yale, comprise nearly half of this book. They provide a fascinating record of captains and their ships, cargoes, business transactions, privateering, routes of voyages, prices of goods, and news of the war. There is an alphabetical list of captains named in the mercantile letter book, a bibliography, an original fullname index and an original index of vessels. The book is illustrated with maps, portraits, historic buildings and facsimiles of documents.

20 CD: History of New London, Connecticut. From the First Survey of the Coast in 1612 to 1860
Frances Manwaring Caulkins
(1895), 2004, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and Mac, indices, 696 pp, Heritage Books
First surveyed by Dutch explorers in 1614, New London quickly rose to prominence in New England's shipping industry due to its excellent harbor, formed by the basin of the Thames River. Late in the Revolutionary War, the American privateer Minerva captured the British merchant ship Hannah (supposed to have carried the most valuable cargo brought into America during the war) and moored it in New London Harbor. On September 5, 1781, a British invasion force under the command of the infamous traitor Gen. Benedict Arnold descended on New London in retaliation for the Hannah's capture, destroying its shipyard, sacking its warehouses and burning the majority of its businesses and several homes. The fortification across the Thames at Groton was also attacked, and its defenders massacred despite attempts to surrender. A monument was erected commemorating those who died in defense of the two towns, while Arnold, a former New London resident, would be burned in effigy for years following the incident. The majority of this history is concerned with the early settlement of New London and its development through the Indian wars, the Revolution and the War of 1812. Matters civil, ecclesiastical, and professional are all discussed at some length, with a smattering of biographical information included. Topics of interest include: regional Indian tribes-the Pequots, Mohegans and Nahantics; the Pequot War; the first European female at New London; early land grants and the first 36 grantees; the first meeting-house and the ancient burial ground; origins of local names; the Rogers and Liveen families; early commerce-ship building, foreign trade, and whaling; Revolutionary War times-New London companies at Bunker Hill, the first alarm in New London, privateering and Arnold's Invasion; the War of 1812 and the British blockade of New London; newspapers; census returns; local businesses and "New London in 1860." A biographical and genealogical "Memoir of Frances Manwaring Caulkins" (1795-1869) precedes the historical narrative. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.
