Learn about where to find birth, marriage & death records


Are there indexes available?

It depends on the time period. The Barbour Collection Index of Town Vital Records dates from the Colonial times to about the year 1850. There are also indexes to Connecticut Marriages & Deaths from 1897 through 1968 on our website. Unfortunately however, there is not a state-wide index to Connecticut vital records from 1851 through 1897. Researchers need to know the town in which the family lived.
