A recommended resource for anyone working on a family that spent any considerable amount of time in the "Quiet Corner" of northeast Connecticut is "History of Windham County, Connecticut," by Ellen D. Larned (two volumes). It will help you wade through confusing changes in town, county and state boundary lines, archaic place names, church schisms and reunions, political feuds and attitudes, that may explain why the records you want aren't always found where you expect them to be. More importantly, Larned writes with a deep understanding of the people -- your ancestors and their neighbors -- revealing them in all their feisty glory.
