Special projects at the Archives

In addition to the regular maintenance of town records, volunteers are working on a number of special projects. Some are highlighted below. If you would like to help with one of these projects, please contact the Archives to learn more.


Are your ancestors buried in one of New London’s cemeteries? Census listings for the Old Main and West Part Cemeteries were created in 1965 and are available below. In 2014, the Archives created a preliminary list for Elkins Cemetery, which remains incomplete and unverified. Nevertheless, it still may have value to researchers. We hope to verify these records and geo-map the grave sites as the project continues.

There are thousands of historic photographs held at the Archives. Since 2008, over 15,000 images have been digitally photographed and tagged. Visitors to the Archives can search and view this growing collection. Images are not available online because copyright restrictions apply to some material.
