Town Historians in Connecticut

This fall, the Connecticut Historical Society and the Connecticut State Historian Walter Woodward would like to host a one-day conference for Connecticut town/municipal historians.  Unfortunately, there is no list of the historians' addresses.  If you are a town historian, would you please contact me and give me your e-mail, home mail, and phone contact information so that we can include you?  We have a survey going up on the web to assess sessions of interest at the conference.

Many thanks --
