A substitute for Lyme, Connecticut’s missing records?

Lyme, Connecticut’s town meeting records for the Revolutionary era are missing, making it a challenge to document the activities of town residents in that period.

The records of the Lyme Public Hall Archives may offer resources to help fill in the gaps. Housed in the Lyme Public Library, the collection includes several manuscripts that appear to date from the Revolutionary War period, including a record of oaths of allegiance. It’s not clear from the catalog whether the manuscript is an original or a transcription of another source. To schedule a visit, visit https://lymepublichall.org/local-history-archives/.
