Probate records are invaluable for genealogists as these records provide names, dates, places, and relationships that form the basis of genealogy. The records are also the product of a legal process concerning important financial matters, and thus are more reliable than, for example, census records. The Windham Probate District comprised the towns of Windham, Lebanon, Coventry, Mansfield, Canterbury, Plainfield, Killingly, Pomfret, and Ashford. With the exception of Woodstock, Massachusetts (now Connecticut), which jutted into the Connecticut colony, this probate district represented the north... View more info

This reprint, first published in 1859, stemmed from a study of the author's family, during which he became interested in the town in which they first settled. The area that later became Windsor was first discovered in 1614 by the Dutch, and was settled as a town, first called Dorchester, in 1636. Beginning with that first settlement, Mr. Stiles carefully records the history of Windsor up to the year 1800, and then provides a succinct summary of the town's history from 1800 to the date of publication. All of the major aspects of a town's growth and settlement are discussed: civil organizations,... View more info

Since the early 1970s, lands within the state of Connecticut have been the focus of land claims brought by state-recognized Indian groups. The compelling factor behind these claims has been the quest for Indian gaming. Land claims were being used as a political and economic tool. Are these land claims historically justified? To answer this question, the author looked back over 507 years of land relationships between Connecticut's Indian inhabitants and the colony/state of Connecticut, beginning with John Cabot's voyage to the New World. Were conveyances of Indian rights to colonists legitimate... View more info

Who were the Schaghticoke Indians? Where did they come from? Were they native to the Kent, Connecticut area? Did they represent the amalgamation of many tribal remnants or were they the continuation of a single historical tribe? The Schaghticoke Indians appeared as a result of historical occurrences at work both far and near. Schaghticoke was the product of two cultures in collision and its consequences. Schaghticoke as a community did not pre-exist the advent of continuous historical contact with Europeans but was created by it. This community had no one single source, it did not emerge from ...
