JEWISH FARMERS IN CONNECTICUT
Please join the Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut on Sunday, February 16, 2014 at 1:30 pm at the Godfrey Memorial Library, 134 Newfield Street, Middletown, CT. Mary Donohue, the co-author of A Life of the Land: Connecticut’s Jewish Farmers, will describe how The Jewish Agricultural Society in New York began an effort in the 1880s to settle some of the new European immigrants on farms in Connecticut. One area the society chose was centered around Colchester, Lebanon, and Montville. The story of these families and how they owned, worked the farms for generations, and developed the resorts of Moodus will be the subject of the talk.
The talk is free and open to the public.
