This Week in the Scholar

In 1924 two brothers from Middletown, CT opened the Dunn Funeral Home at 530 Main Street.  The Godfry Library is lucky enough to have exclusive access to the records of the Dunn Funeral Home records from 1910 to 1966, from before the official location was even opened!  Before the official funeral home opened caskets were built in the local furniture store and viewings were held in the families' homes.  And now all eleven volumes of these records are available on the Godfrey Scholar!  In a few weeks we'll have them indexed and searchable as well.

We've also added more genealogies, biographies, and a few more records from the Doolittle Funeral Home.
