Connecticut Information
 

CT State Library


In Connecticut only certified copies of Birth, Death, and Marriage records can be issued. No uncertified records are available.

Birth records less than 100 years old may only be issued to:

Parents, children, grandparents, or spouses or
Members of genealogical societies incorporated to do business in CT

Death records may be obtained as long as the exact date of death is known. No Social Security numbers are included on issued death certificates.

Church baptismal records are also an excellent source of genealogical information. Requirements differ for every church, but in general, the seeker must supply most churches with a full name and year of birth in order to obtain baptismal information (which would include parents’ names). For death records the church may be able to supply an exact date, but no other significant genealogical information is recorded.

Information in Other States

Please contact your state’s Department of Vital Statistics for records information on genealogical resources in other towns or states. Contact information for all states is available at National Center for Health Statistics.
