Bill Library: Janice W. Bell Historical Research Room

Help us in our quest to preserve Ledyard’s History. We are collecting items of local interest to add to our digital collection. We will scan your copies and return the original to you along with a digital copy placed on your flash drive. Your Gales Ferry and Ledyard memories will be added to the archive in the Janice W. Bell Historical Research Room at the Bill Library.

We can also assist you in preserving your family history:

  • Donations of materials related to the people, buildings, and events of Ledyard and Gales Ferry are gratefully accepted for preservation and inclusion in the collection for future researchers, either as digital copies or the items themselves.
  • Need a safe home for family history items that may not interest younger generations? We can provide that home, and will give you a digital copy. (We can even arrange for items to be kept private until a future date of your choosing.)
  • Digital copies are easy to share with far-flung family members, or use as a back-up if the original is lost or damaged.
