Connecticut State Library: Connecticut State Library Receives $100,000 Grant from National Historical Publications & Records Commission (NHPRC). “The grant will support a two-year project, Uncovering Hidden Resources in New Haven Court Records,1700-1855, to enhance access to judicial records held in the State Archives. The project continues the work funded by two earlier grants to identify records related to interactions with the court system by underrepresented groups, especially enslaved persons, free persons of color, and indigenous persons. The richness of court records provides additional insights into these communities.”
