The Barbour Collection of Connecticut town vital records at the Connecticut State Library in Hartford is one of the last great genealogical manuscript collections to be published. Covering 137 towns and comprising 14,333 typed pages, this magnificent collection of birth, marriage, and death records to about 1850 was the life work of General Lucius Barnes Barbour, Connecticut Examiner of Public Records from 1911 to 1934.

Through the year 2000, our compilers have transcribed about three-quarters of the Barbour Collection, spanning the towns of Andover through Stonington, in 43 separate volumes. Book by book, the record entries in this series are arranged in strict alphabetical order by town and give name, date of event, names of parents, names of both spouses, and sometimes such items as age, occupation, and specific place of residence.

Following a one-year hiatus, the Barbour series resumes with Volume 44, compiled by Jan Tilton. Covering the towns of Stafford and Tolland, Connecticut, this volume identifies some 31,000 18th- and 19th-century inhabitants.
