From the Old Sod to the Naugatuck Valley at the Naugatuck Historical Society

06/21/2012

195 Water Street, Naugatuck, CT Phone: 203 729 9039.

6:00 pm. Janet Maher's book takes us on a journey from Ireland to Naugatuck by way of Catholicism. Mapping of local cemeteries like Saint Francis and locating records and letters throughout the 19th century she connects "the old sod" to the Naugatuck Valley and the early Irish Catholics in New Haven County. Mapping and thoroughly transcribing the oldest Catholic cemetery in Naugatuck, Saint Francis, Maher has made connections between generations of families and friends. The book includes selected marriage, baptism and death records throughout the nineteenth century and excerpts from rare letters between Irish immigrants and individuals still in Ireland.  In many ways Maher has made the people whose graves she encountered in cemeteries come alive again. Free for Society members, all AOH members and students, $5 non-members, light refreshments will be served. Books will be available for purchase and signatures. Plenty of free parking and we are conveniently located at the Metro North stop in the historic railroad station.
