NOTE: The Bell Room will be closed for Memorial Day on Monday, May 27, 2019.

On the first Saturday of the month we welcome curious visitors, historical or genealogical inquiries, or the loan of items for digitization.

  • Need a safe home for family history items that may not interest younger generations? We can provide that home, and will give you a digital copy. (We can even arrange for items to be kept private until a future date of your choosing.)
  • Donations of materials related to the people, buildings, and events of Ledyard and Gales Ferry are gratefully accepted for preservation and inclusion in the collection for future researchers, either as digital copies or the items themselves.
  • Your Gales Ferry and Ledyard memories will be added to the archive in the Janice W. Bell Historical Research Room at the Bill Library. We will scan them and return to you with a digital copy placed on your flash drive. Digital copies are easy to share with far-flung family members, or use as a back-up if the original is lost or damaged.

Contact Andrea Buka at research@ledyardhistory.org or 860-464-9912 (Bill Library) for more information.
