I was born in 1933 and grew up in Stamford. Dr Barnes Sanitarium was talked
about during the 1940s. I think it was in the Long Ridge area of Stamford. I
hope this helps somebody.

Does anyone know where the records for Dr. Barnes Sanitarium (est.
1898) in Stamford CT are?
It previously was "Grey Towers". I found a family of my ancestors
listed in the June 1900 census taken at Grey Towers and they are also
listed in the June 1900 census at their home address in NYC.

Westchester County Genealogical Society (NY) Upcoming Meeting
The Westchester County Genealogical Society welcomes Toni McKeen with her
program titled Let City Directories Work For You on Saturday, March 14, 2009 at
City Directories are very valuable and useful tools that genealogists use to
track people over a span of years, especially the years falling between the
takings of the census. They give you a person’s address and an occupation in
a given year and several members of the same family unit who were gainfully
employed will appear in the alphabetized list.
Toni McKeen has been passionate about genealogy for over 20 years. Toni has
been researching her huge Italian family as well as her husband’s Irish family
during this time. Her research has led her to the ancestral homes of her
grandparents in Sicily, Calabria, and the Amalfi Coast of Italy and she have
made several trips to the "homeland" in search of documents.
Ms. McKeen has taught several levels of genealogy in Founders Hall in
Ridgefield, CT for more than 5 years as well as given other lectures in New York
and Connecticut. This lecture will focus on the use of city directories in
The meeting opens at 10:00 a.m. at the Aldersgate United Methodist Church,
