Society Saturday: Connecticut Ancestry Society and Southwestern Connecticut
I thought I knew about most of the Connecticut genealogy societies, but as it turns out, I was wrong. If you had family from Southwestern Connecticut (near Stamford), there's a society just for you. The Connecticut Ancestry Society was founded in 1954. Most of their work is locally oriented: they run regular workshops and advocate for records preservation. However, if you're cross-country, there may still be a reason to join. Their scholarly journal publishes articles on families in that region. It may even include yours!
