Websites & Resources

  • A History of the Pequot War – Book by Lion Gardiner, via InternetArchive. [Thanks, Drew!]
  • The Pequot War – Information about the conflict via the website for The Society of Colonial Wars in the State of Connecticut.
  • Beginners Guide to Genetic Genealogy – Website-based lessons (put together by Kelly Wheaton) for learning about genetic genealogy.  [Thanks, CeCe!]
  • Congregational Yearbooks – Digitized church yearbooks going back to 1854 via the Congregational Library.  “One of the library’s most frequently used reference resources is a succession of denominational yearbooks dating back to 1854. They contain lists of active ministers, necrologies (obituaries) of recently deceased ministers, church statistics, and the denominations’ annual reports.  This resource is particularly useful to churches preparing for an anniversary, genealogists, and authors researching church histories.”  [Thanks, Gena!]
  • The Forgotten Photographs Project – “Within our database, you will find hundreds of lost and discarded photographs from around the country.  These photographs were collected from a number of sources; antique shops, flea markets, auctions and estate sales, and put together into one searchable database.”  [Thanks, NGS!]
