GenWeb sites are usually not the most usable. Many were abandoned sometime in the last five years. Even those that weren't often have problems. They're based on old website formats or have lists of volunteers who haven't participated in a decade. And then there are the rare sites that know exactly what they're doing.
Branford falls somewhere in between. The site's outdated (the last update was in 2011); the format is rather basic. However, the content is good. The author - a reference librarian at the public library- provides links to state and local resources and even general genealogy guides. If you have ancestors from Branford and don't know much about genealogy, this is a good place to start.
