If you have time to share, please consider participating in the Ed Laput Cemetery Project. Volunteers are involved in photographing and transcribing tombstones, building databases, and searching cemetery records.
Tombstones continue to deteriorate and cemetery records are sometimes missing, damaged, or poorly organized. The project seeks to preserve tombstone design and carving, as well as identify "lost" cemeteries. To date, volunteers have completed 956 cemeteries with 370,664 names and 303,321 photographs. Eleven Connecticut towns have all of their cemeteries done.
Interested in participating? Please email Beth Mariotti at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the library at 860-346-4375.
