Join us on Tuesday, August 30th at 7 pm in the Keeney Center Ballroom for an evening of exploration into the relationship between Bridgetown and Wethersfield, two former colonial trading posts. Sandra will discuss common themes between Colonial Barbados and Wethersfield, what the records show, her Connecticut tall ship maritime experience and her migration experience from Barbados to Connecticut. Sandra Taitt-Eaddy is a Connecticut based public historian, educator and genealogist whose roots are in the island Barbados, one of Wethersfield’s main colonial trading partners.
