Workday Wednesday: Connecticut History Online
Have you ever wondered what your ancestor's occupation looked like? A Connecticut website has made it possible for you to see into the past. Designed as classroom resource, Connecticut History Online is a database presenting pictures, documents, and more from Connecticut history. Photo essays in the site's "Journeys" section allow a visitor to glimpse someone's work life. An essay entitled "Women in Music, Art, Literature" includes snapshots of a film editor and a women's orchestra. "Women as Educators" depicts the local school houses. Take a look. While you may not find photos of your ancestor, you're likely to walk away with a clearer understanding of his or her life.
