Just go to
And there will be an address to write to for joining the Godfrew
Schooler program that includes access to the HQ online library. They
have thousands of books online that you can browse one page at a time or
download as PDF files to read offline. About the only place in CT that
may have more books (but not all the same) is the State Library in
Hartford. HQ has many that you can not find anyplace else as the got the
compleate History and Genealogy sections of some libraries that closed
On all books it you click on download this book it will list the
chapters and what pages they cover. Than you can click on a chapter name
to read that part rather than guesing where something may be. This makes
using it a lot easier.
If you have thought about joining an onlne library this is the only one
to go with. I have tried the one at ancestry and it was not good at all
compaired to HQ that comes with the Godfrey Schooler program.
Two big things that they don't have are the CT Barbour and Hale Colections.
They have all the books on MA Vital Records to 1850, which are great.
They also give you access to several years census imiages for the whole
country at that time. If you do a search on a name there you will
usually come up with about 200 books that include a person by that name.
If you can't wait to do it by mail thay also have a phone number that
you can call and join over the phone using a charge or debit card. They
will give you the card number over the phone so you can start using it
right away. That is great of you have a cell phone with nationwide colling.
If you do join and download something that you like and type it up Jane
Devlin (List Mon) would be happy to post it at her web site. If it is
outside of Middlesex county Jane or I would both be willing to post it.
I leave most Middlesex County things for Jane and she leaves most (but
not all) Litchfirld County things for my web sites. We often find things
at other places and give them to each other for these counties.

It has been great seeing more postings on this list in the past week,
almost forgot that I was a member. I may not be doing research anymore,
but still adding to the web site.
