New in Digital Collections –

A General Index to the Private Laws and Special Acts of the State of Connecticut, 1789-1943

This large PDF file allows online indexing for the first time to a valuable and hard to find area of Connecticut law and history. Special Acts and Private Laws are enactments of the Connecticut Legislature that never got codified into the General Statutes, but carry the same force of law. They include such things as town charters and amendments, establishments of corporations and nonprofit organizations, and individual petitions for damages or divorces.

The Index is also linked from its entry in the Connecticut State Library catalog.

Light on New Netherland was created by the New Netherland Institute, “an organization that promotes awareness of the Dutch history of colonial America…” The exhibit, located in Memorial Hall, runs through the end of March.
