Society Saturday: Cornwall Historical Soceity

   Researching Connecticut's smaller towns can be quite the challenge. There's no local newspaper, no well organized website, no easy way to access resources - unless, of course, you know how to reach the local historical society. Historical societies are the best way to research a small town. They often have hundreds or thousands of boxes of documents, not to mention a great oral history.
   The Cornwall Historical Society's website provides an entry point to the history of Cornwall, CT. The site provides not only suggestions for research - books for purchase, access to the genealogy library - but also for learning more about Cornwall. "Cornwall Cemeteries", linked to from the "Points of Interest" page, traces the past of Cornwall's burying grounds. Other page delve into the Historical Society and more.
   Happy research!
