Any question that starts out “I need some information about…” is probably too broad and too vague. Please be specific and detailed in your request.
“I want a copy of a death notice for a family member. His name was James Noonan and he died in Stamford in 1941.”
We need to have a specific day, month and year to check local newspapers for any such
information. Also, we cannot provide in-depth genealogical research, but we have identified resources to help you in your search, “Genealogy”.
“Can you send me some information about the textile industry?”
Since there are numerous books and Internet resources for such topics, we would expect you to do this basic research. We will try to answer a specific question, for example, about a specific company or person that had some link to Stamford or Connecticut.
“What are some interesting facts about Connecticut?”
We cannot research this type of question. We can confirm a fact, or give information on a particular fact. Please use historical chronologies for this type of information.
“What can you tell me about the Blizzard of ’88?”
We cannot research this type of question without some further specific information. Please be specific and detailed in your request.
