Why can't I find my town?

Looking for Rockfall or Taftville, CT records? You've probably already hit a dead-end. What do you do next? I'll let you in on a little secret.

Connecticut has a number of small villages and neighborhoods with their own names - most of which are part of larger towns. To find your record, youl will need to identify the parent town. An internet search for the town name + history will usually lead you in the right direction. If you get stuck, put a call into the town hall or public library in a nearby town. Hopefully, they can help. With the name of the parent town, it's easy to make the next step.
