Footprints Across Connecticut from East Granby & Granby 1930 Census -Cover Photo - Picking Tobacco on Floydville Farm

Jean Perreault, qualified by the Connecticut Sate Library to do genealogy research, takes an in depth look at the 2381 residents from the Granbys who were enumerated in the depression era 1930 Federal census. Her publication entitled Footprints Across Connecticut From 1930 East Granby & Granby Census, is a digest of information concerning these Connecticut residents. Most of their lives have now ended but their personal histories live on through public records. The author accessed vital statistics, prior census records, town directories, military records, and newspaper obituaries to document the lives led by these early 20th century residents. Jean is also the author of a companion book on 1930 Simsbury CT inhabitants published in 2007, which received Awards of Merit from both “The American Association for State and Local History” and the “Connecticut League of History Organizations” as well as the First Prize in New England Genealogical Resource Publications from “The Connecticut Society of Genealogists.” More information can be found on the author’s web page at
