Genealogy and Local History Room at Otis Library

The Reference Department, with much help from our Technical Department is going through our Genealogy collection and updating it. Well, updating in the sense that we are trying to make it more accessible to the people who are interested in Norwich and it's history. We have found some very exciting things, some great maps, interesting old newspaper clippings and some wonderful pictures of the area.

We also found some great items documenting the '38 Hurricane. Hopefully we will be putting together a display for everyone to see the items in our collection dealing with the hurricane.

Feel free to come on down and see what we have in our Genealogy room, it is filled to the brim with Norwich lore, and we would be more than happy to show you around.
