Connecticut Graves Finally Being Catalogued – Again

If you have researched gravestones in Connecticut to find your Hubbell ancestors, you know what a help the Charles Hale Collection can be for locating older graves.  That is particularly true now as so many stones have eroded over time and become more difficult to read every day. Unfortunately, that work ended in 1934. To the rescue comes Ed Laput who has taken on the job of cataloging graves across the state and providing the lists for storage at the Godfrey Memorial Library in Middletown. 

For more about the work he has undertaken read the article in the June 30, 2011 issue of the Hartford Courant. This small genealogical library has grown by leaps and bounds over the last few years and should be considered one of the “regulars” to consult as you do genealogical research in Connecticut. Be sure to let Hilbert Hubble our Family Genealogist  know if you find a long lost ancestor as a result of finding information turned up in the new catalog.
