Amanuensis Monday: Great Hill School 1892-93 Seymour CT

This entry was posted by Jim Sanders on Monday, 24 December, 2012 at

Have you ever wondered if there’s a 1890 census substitute which identifies children? Well there’s a great resource if they survived. That resource is a school register. Here’s the school register from the Great Hill School in Seymour, Connecticut for the academic year of 1892-93. Many school registers include the actual birth date in the data they collect. Unfortunately, this one didn’t.

  1. An excellent suggestion, but are any of these records cataloged and available on line?

      Unfortunately, most of these records are not cataloged or available online. Also many of these school registers did not survive until today. There are a number of places I would check for the town you’re looking for;

      1) The local historical society (Seymour, Connecticut has registers from 1891 – 1956)
      2) The local library (Newtown, Connecticut [Booth Library] has registers from the 1890s in their vault [some library staff may not know about them but they are there])
      3) The local town historian
      4) The local genealogy club or society
      5) The local town clerks office
      6) The state archives
      7) The state library
