This is another one of those western states where I do not have any links to. This week, I’ve decided to highlight one of the Colorado Genealogical Links I found.

The Colorado State University can be proud of their digital collections. They have a variety of records which can be useful for those looking for their ancestors and for learning about how their ancestors lived while in Colorado. These include;

My only link to the state of Nevada is through a second cousin one time removed. We both descend from John Charles Sanders and Mary Clark Tripp of New Britain, Connecticut. Since she may still be living and I have not been able to contact her, I will leave her name off of this post. She was married for the first time in 1948 in Reno Nevada.

Given my early colonial New England roots, I was surprised to find out that I did not have a lot of connections to the state of Maine. My closest connection is a first cousin, twice removed. As it appears to be a common theme lately, he is also a descendant of John Charles Sanders and Mary Clark Tripp.

George Joseph Sanders was born on 03-Nov-1906 in New Britain, Hartford County, Connecticut. He married Ethel H. Pichard on 22-May-1943 in Waterbury, New Haven County, Connecticut. He died in February 1985. His last known address was in Waldoboro, Lincoln County, Maine

A have a few notes my father had recorded about him including;

  • He was a retired toolmaker at Lewis Engineering Co. in Naugatuck, CT
  • He was also a licensed amateur radio operator since 1923. His call sign K1GZI
  • According to his mothers obituary, George lived in Cheshire, Ct in 1956
