Wedding Wednesday: FamilySearch.org's marriage index
Since Connecticut's records are kept on the town level, I love it when I can find a vital records index. It saves you hours of hand searching files. FamilySearch.org offers free access to such an index. Created from the state's vital records between 1959 and 2001, the index is searchable by spouse's name and basic identifying information. While you will not see the whole form, you can locate the town where you can order the record. When you have a marriage date, a copy can be requested from the town's clerk.
