Connecticut Connection

By Susan Wenner Premium

Those of you with ancestral links to Connecticut will love this: Three research institutions have teamed up to post 14,000 images of the state’s history online. Connecticut History Online will provide free access to prints, photographs and drawings from the Connecticut Historical Society, Mystic Seaport and the University of Connecticut’s Thomas J. Dodd Research Center. According to the site’s creators, its content “reflects the state’s social, educational, political, civic and cultural life from 1800 to 1950.” Already, 2,200 images are up and searchable at <> and the rest are due to be completed by this summer.

Scottish gateway


Remember The country’s top Web site recently re-launched as Scotland On Line <> with “channels” focused on news, sports, travel and more. Perhaps most interesting to you will be its heritage channel at <>. Both fun and informative, you can drink up the facts on whiskey (“the water of life”) or find your family tartan, historic timelines and biographies of “Great Scots.”
