Oxford Past, Connecticut
 
The town of Oxford is located in southwestern New Haven County, Connecticut. The Oxford Past website is "dedicated to providing a free database of Oxford history online." Resources include:

Cemeteries
The Cemetery Project section contains links to burial listings and headstone photographs for about twenty-five cemeteries in Oxford and surrounding communities in New Haven County, and three cemeteries in Fairfield County. Click the cemetery name for an alphabetical listing of individuals buried in that cemetery. The data fields are name, date died, age, photo, and year (when the data was collected by the W.P.A.). In most cases there is a photograph of the gravestone.

Library
In this section researchers will find numerous transcribed resources or digitized images related to cemeteries, diaries, Oxford histories, letters, the military, newspaper clippings (obituaries of local residents from area newspapers), and records (Oxford town reports between 1879 and 1944).

Photo album
Photographs of area residents are organized alphabetically by surname.
 
1850s Maps
Maps of Oxford from 1850, 1852, and 1856 show the names and locations of homes of area residents. There is also a link to the Oxford Historical Society's 1868 F. W. Beers map of Oxford.

More Projects
Links to other online Oxford resources include an Oxford Bicentennial slide show and resources related to the Candee, Chatfield, Treat, and Wheeler families.
