Church Record Sunday: First Church of Christ, Old Saybrook

  The First Church of Christ in Saybrook bills itself as the original church of the Saybrook settlement. According to the history section of the church's website, the present building - which dates from 1840 - is the fourth incarnation of a church first established in the small fort.
   Church records are a bit scattered. Some of the church records are held by the Old Saybrook Historical Society, which does research for $10 per hour. Others are in publication form, accessible from a local bookstore. According to an article on American Ancestors, records are also part of the state church record index.
   Happy research!
