Doing Genealogy

THE GENEALOGY COLLECTION includes over 250 volumes of family histories, 500 family surname files, an index to birth, marriage and death records, and copies of church vital records. Genealogists have also found the Society’s manuscript collections useful for their research. The Society's collections are strongest for the town of Litchfield, though we do have some materials pertaining to other towns in the county. Please also check the Guide to Local Resources to find other repositories that may be able to help you.

Official birth, death, and marriage records, as well as land and probate records, are located in the town halls of each town. Information on contacting town halls can also be found in the Guide to Local Resources.
