The Year 2009 Concludes...

The Year 2009 is concluding. Time flies, as those of us immersed in history know well. May 2010 bring all of you hope, happiness, good health and prosperity.

Historically yours,

Jeffrey Bingham Mead

Internet Archive: Spencer P. Mead's Abstracts of records and tombstones of the town of Greenwich (1913)

As a follow-up to yesterday's posting of the Internet Archive's access to an electronic version of Spencer P. Mead's 'History and genealogy of the Mead family' visitors may also access and download Mead's 'Abstracts of Records and Tombstones of the Town of Greenwich (1913). This was the first comprehensive inventory of gravestone records and inscriptions in Greenwich's history. The book is divided into a listing individual cemetery sites with alphabetized inventories of those interred in Greenwich cemeteries as of 1913.

The box on the left side of the page provides visitors with various options. You may download the text as a pdf-file, for example, or you may also read the text online. Enjoy!
