Irish burial places 1834-1850

Can You Help Save a Piece of New Haven's Neighborhood History?

CTIAHS member Catherine Crawford is compiling class photos and class lists of the 8th grade graduating classes from Sacred Heart and St Peter Schools of New Haven CT. Both now closed, (St Peter's has been demolished), these schools, and the generations of students who graduated from them are integral to the history of the Hill neighborhood of New Haven, home to many Irish immigrant and Irish-American families. The following group picture is that of the:-

Catherine intends to scan each photo and class list to produce a CD on the histories of these beloved schools. She started off with the records held by each school but there are gaps. The following is a listing of those years which she still needs to complete her project. Best results will be obtained from originals but excellent copies may also work. Please email Catherine at [email protected] if you can help.

Any stories or other photos of New Haven school days from any school are always welcomed by CTIAHS so please email us at [email protected] if you have something to share with us for the Society’s archives and/or web page. THANKS!


Several members have suggested we add to our website a “Wish List” of supplies, equipment, services, etc. needed to help the Connecticut Irish-American Historical Society prosper and grow. So here goes:

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.

As a result of the above request, we received the following World War 1 photos which were taken on Commeration Day in New Haven in 1915. Photos 1 and 5 show a group of Red Cross Nurses marching in their whites on Church Street.

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 O’Neill cottage in New London, St. Patrick’s 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.

Wish List Address

If you have Wish List items, please contact us at (203) 392-6126; CTIAHS, P.O. Box 185833, Hamden 06518; [email protected] And keep visiting our website. We will add items to the list as the need arises.

If you have not already done so, please renew your membership for 2011. Dues are still only $10 for members and $15 for families. Make out your check to CTIAHS and send to CTIAHS, Post Office Box 185833, Hamden, CT 06518.
