I apologize to everyone that I have not been able to keep this blog up since school started again, BUT – I am finishing my book and, God willing (as my Irish ancestors would say), it will be out for Christmas! Early Irish Catholics of New Haven County Connecticut! More info will be forthcoming.
To all who celebrate this, a very Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends, near and far!

Hi Janet, I’m thrilled you finished the book. Looking forward to reading it. Have a great and “restful” (that means to cooking ) Thanksgiving. Love, Sue
Thank you – still much to do but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Happiness to you and your family! Janet
That will be a book worth waiting for…
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Janet…
Give yourself a gift, some daily quiet time, when and where you can. 🙂
Likewise, Chris, and wishing you all well down under! I love that Australia connections are coming into focus at bit.

Hi Janet, I think if you look up St. Bernard’s Cemetery location, you will find the cemetery is wholly located in New Haven, Ct. not West Haven, Ct.
I grew up a few blocks from there and have a younger brother buried there alongside
of the Boulevard. Bob L.
Hi Bob, Yes, I’d always considered it to be New Haven too until I saw what seems to be the official address, which notes it as West Haven. Thanks for the comment,
Bob, Thank you for making me wonder more about this. I’ve called and found out that the mailing address, which is West Haven, is actually that of St. Lawrence Cemetery, where they handle info for St. Bernard. You are correct that St. Bernard is New Haven. Since Ella Grasso Blvd. is so far from the center and heading toward Derby, I wasn’t sure, so glad I checked. Thanks again.
