Exploring Connecticut's Vital Records

Are you interested in searching Connecticut’s town and city halls for vital records? The right to search in these repositories is restricted to members of genealogical societies that are incorporated by the State.  The Indian and Colonial Research Center is an incorporated genealogy center, recognized by and registered with the Secretary of the State of Connecticut in accordance with Section 7-51 of the General Statutes.  Membership in the OMHC provides you with the genealogists’ “blue card” that acts as your passport to these records.
