Some Additional Space
The CTIAHS shares space with four other historical societies, collectively known as the Ethnic Heritage Center, in a building at Southern Connecticut State University. But we are outgrowing our allotted space. Our library is increasing with new books, magazines, family histories, documents, records, etc. We would love to have more space a room or two somewhere to help us keep pace with the new materials that are constantly being donated. We could also use the space for permanent exhibits. For example, many people came to see our exhibit about Irish baseball players in Connecticut, but we had to take it down after several months for lack of space. If we had an extra room, we could make it a permanent exhibit.
World War I Pictures
Someone also suggested that we ask if anyone has World War I pictures. Pictures of Connecticut Irish soldiers, sailors, airmen, nurses, Knights of Columbus volunteers, Irish people working in defense plants here in Connecticut. We doubt if there are very many such pictures still around. But if people send us copies of some, we will display them here and publish them in The Shanachie as a special World War I collection.
Anyone with Video Production Skills?We are looking for members with video production skills to help us transform our old slide show, Connecticut Footsteps Across Connecticut, into an up-to-date audio/video production. The slide show features photos of place in the state having Irish significance the Eugene ONeill cottage in New London, St. Patricks Church in Waterbury where all the stained glass windows are of Irish saints and all the inscriptions are in Gaelic, the statue of Father McGivney at the K. of C. headquarters in New Haven, etc., etc. We would like to redo this into a film format with voice-over so that it could be shown at meetings and gatherings to tell the story of the Irish in Connecticut.
