This CD consists of an alphabetized and edited list of vital statistics and other information bearing on the inhabitants of the towns of early Connecticut. Based extensively on the Barbour Collection of Connecticut Town Vital Records, the chief resource in Connecticut genealogy, it covers the period from approximately 1633, when these statistics were first recorded, to around 1850. In addition to the celebrated Barbour Collection, this compilation also includes vital statistics from several Connecticut towns not included by Barbour, as well as information gleaned from lists of source records, Bibles, and church records held in the Connecticut State Library in Hartford. Also, it includes tombstone transcriptions from over 400 cemeteries which were originally published in The Connecticut Nutmegger, a publication of the Connecticut Society of Genealogists formerly edited by Jacquelyn Ricker.
