Resources for Genealogists

The Norwich Bulletin from 1910-1922 is a goldmine for those researching family history.  Once a week, the newspaper carried a feature called “100 Live Correspondents.”  In this feature are to be found accounts of local news, including social visits from one resident to another, from nearly 100 towns, villages, and crossroads in Eastern Connecticut.   To demonstrate the geographical breadth of coverage from just one issue of the Norwich Bulletin–September 9, 1911–we have pinned the correspondents’ reports from that day to a map.  Each pin represents a newspaper report from a distinct population center covered in that issue.  

If you search this map by the tag “Bulletin,” and then click on one of the pinned newspaper clippings, you can see that day’s report for that location.
