Follow Friday: FamilySearch Wiki
This isn't precisely a blog, but I did want to share it because of its use to Connecticut researchers. As you may or may not know, FamilySearch.org hosts state focused wikis. Connecticut's (https://www.familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/Connecticut) is run by the local branch of USGenWeb. The site outlines the basic history of the site, the county system, and where to find major types of records. It also includes an interactive map of the state. Click on a county, and you will find a list of resources within the county. Some of this material is reader beware - I found a link to the Middlesex County Library in Illinois - but much is useful to a state newbie. Good luck with your research!
