Jewish Genners-

PBS's "History Detectives" just had a fascinating segment on early
20th century Jewish farming in Connecticut. My wife's family, the
LIFSCHUTZ family, farmed in East Haddam, CT and then in
Uncasville/Montville, CT. They had the farm in Uncasville for decades
between 1905 and 1955.

My questions:

1. Can anyone point me to some good references about these farms?
2. Are there other Jewish Genners who's family settled in or passed
through these towns?
3. Are there current residents of these towns who know anything about
the Jewish farmers in the area?

Thank you
