Ledyard Historical Society Open Archive

Janice W. Bell Historical Research Room at the Bill Library

Join us at the monthly “open archive” where we welcome curious visitors, anyone with historical & genealogical inquiries, and the loan or donation of your items for digitization.
 
Your Gales Ferry and Ledyard memories will be added to the archive. We will scan them and return to you with a digital copy placed on your flash drive. 
 
We can also assist you in preserving our community’s history: 
 
  • 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. 
 
  • Pictures, memorabilia, yearbooks, etc., from the Ledyard Center School are especially welcome! Contact us to share your digital images or to bring in physical items for scanning & return, or for donation. 
 
  • 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.) 
 
Contact Andrea Buka at research@ledyardhistory.org or 860-464-9912 (Bill Library) for more information.
