The Connecticut Historical Society’s Genealogy Collection

Volume 10 Issue 3, Fall 2003

Third of a Three-Part Series on the CHS Collections

Very early in his forty-seven year tenure as Librarian of the Connecticut Historical Society, Albert Carlos Bates had the foresight to recognize the significance of genealogy in the Society’s library. In 1893 Bates implemented the purchase of the D.W. Patterson library, thus establishing a core genealogical collection on which the Society has continuously built.
