Middletown, CT: Real Property by Street and other materials
|We're happy to once again make
available, this time as a series of downloads, a collection of historical
material about Middletown, Connecticut that will be of interest to local historians,
genealogists, and those with a personal tie to the locale. We originally
offered this as the "Middletown Collection" on CD-ROM.
As we realized that offering material as downloads as opposed to CD-ROMs made sense both for us and for our customers, we began converting our CDs to downloads, and here are the downloads originally making up the Middletown Collection CD.
