Carolyn Smith has created a web site listing her vast research materials for lookups. Thank you, Carolyn!
I'll do lookups from "A Modern History of New London County, Connecticut, Volume III," 1922, Editor in Chief, Benjamin Tinkham Marshall, A.M., D.D., President of Connecticut College, New London, published by Lewis Historical Publishing Co, NY. This is a book of biographies of local businessmen, educators, and ministers who were still living in 1922 at the time the book was published, so the DOB probably will be no earlier than the 1830's. However, with each biography, there is a good bit of family history and in some cases, a photograph. There are a lot of repeats of the same surname, so please ask for a specific name. If I find your ancestor, I'll transcribe the biography to the New London County CTGenWeb (some have been transcribed on THIS PAGE.
