I started digging through the records for Eastford, Connecticut because - and I'm slightly ashamed to admit this - I don't think I'd ever heard of it. It's a small town in eastern Connecticut, near Pompfret. The current population is around 1600, according to Wikipedia. (Yes, I know this is a "bad" source.)
The Eastford Historical Society has published several of the Eastford Historical Society's Quarterly newsletters
to the town website. It's a little low-tech (PDF) uploads, and only two
newsletters have been uploaded. However, if you can be patient, you'll
be rewarded with some fascinating information on the town of Eastford.
