Local History


Contact Us

We do answer genealogy and local history inquiries; however, we cannot conduct lengthy, in-depth research. We use indexed sources such as newspaper indexes for births, deaths, and marriages, indexes to early vital records, naturalization indexes, and cemetery headstone indexes. For more complex searches, you may wish to contact the Connecticut State Library for a list of researchers who specialize in conducting genealogical research for a fee.
