State Archives Finding Aids

The State Archives holds records from more than 70 Connecticut state government departments, commissions, and offices, covering the colonial period to the present. Historical records from the three branches of State government document the evolution of state public policy and its implementation, the rights and claims of citizens, and the history of Connecticut and its people. In addition, there are files from many non-governmental institutions, organizations, and churches, as well as collections of tax lists and other official records from Connecticut towns.

The Connecticut State Archives is undertaking an ongoing project to make finding aids available online. Hard copies of finding aids are available to researchers at the History and Genealogy reference desk if they are not yet online.
