This page contains links to biographical databases, sketches of Connecticut Governors and of Judges & Attorneys, resources to research past Connecticut General Assembly members and State Officials, as well as indexes to biographical files that are available at the library. Keep in mind that most biographical entries are for well known historical figures (think Christopher Columbus), or prominent Connecticut people (think Governor Ella Grasso or actor William Gillette).
