Welcome to the
Notes from Kathie:
With permission of the author, I have created the following name index to "Images of America - Vernon and Historic Rockville", by Dr. S. Ardis Abbott and Jean A. Luddy, 1998, Arcadia Publishing. The book is a fascinating pictorial account of the history of Vernon and Rockville, Connecticut. It is a must-have for anyone whose ancestors are from the area. Copies are available from the Historical Society (Ardis is currently the Museum Director and Jean is Past President) for $16.99, call (860) 875-4326 and leave a detailed message or write to: The Vernon Historical Society P.O. Box 2055, Vernon, CT 06066. Vernon Historical Society
I do not have permission to copy from the book, so please do not write to me asking that I do so. I am providing this index to help fellow genealogists, and do not benefit from the sale of the book in any way.
Many of the photographs included in the book are of buildings or homes in town and owner's names are identified below as "mention". Others are actual portraits and are so indicated.
