Researching Connecticut Ancestors February 20, 2016

Sperry Light House New Haven Ct This is not the image I’m looking for but at least it’s an image for New Haven.  The image I want is a map of Old Connecticut.  The computer tells me that file cannot be uploaded.  I’ll investigate tomorrow.  I get that message too often!  My tech support looked at the problem briefly a couple of weeks ago but so much else has been going on ……..  And now Tech Support has gone to southern California for a week of cycling – Bicycle Camp!!  Maybe he can think about it as he pedals along.
