If you’re like me, you’re scrambling to finish organization projects before going back to a normal schedule on Monday. So what do you do with the stuff you’ve cleaned out? Here are four Connecticut locations that will accept genealogy related donations:
- Godfrey Memorial Library, Middletown (www.godfrey.org): Godfrey accepts genealogy and family history books, as well as Connecticut local history books. If they can’t use the item, it’s included in their ongoing book sale – so no matter what, it goes to a good cause.
- Russell Library, Middletown (www.russelllibrary.org): Do you have old maps of the Middletown area? The library welcomes map donations for their Middletown Room collection.
- Connecticut State Library, Hartford (www.ctstatelibrary.org) : Have historic manuscripts concerning Connecticut families? The CT State Library will often accept them.
- Connecticut Historical Society, Hartford (www.chs.org): CHS accepts Connecticut published material and can be a great home for local newspapers and magazines.
Good luck with the cleaning!
