The Genealogical Index Corridor in the History & Genealogy (H&G) Unit of the State Library is a destination for many who are researching Connecticut ancestors. With this in mind, H&G staff have created a guide to understanding and using these valuable collections. Whether you are planning a research trip, are curious as to what surname indexes are available here, or want to understand more about a certain collection, we hope this guide will be of help to you.

Did you know that behind the scenes here at CSL, deep in the basement in the Preservation Office, major digtization projects are underway? Many interesting historical and archival materials are being brought to life online via our website’s Digital Collections page. http://ow.ly/VgtD

One new development involving our law material is that slowly but surely, our legislative history transcripts are being digitized and posted online. All volumes for the 1971 Senate Proceedings are now available at: http://ow.ly/VgAR . Also, all 3 volumes of the 1965 CT Constitutional Convention transcripts are posted at: http://ow.ly/VgCT . And this is only the beginning! We are currently working on linking directly to some of these transcripts through our online index.  This way, you will be able to get to the exact pages you need for a particular leg. history.
