Barbour Collection

The Barbour Collection consists of abstracts of town, church and other original records in Connecticut. It was first created as a slip index of over a million entries by Lucius B. Barbour at the Connecticut State Library in Hartford, Connecticut. It is a statewide index of births, marriages, and deaths arranged alphabetically by surname. Yellow slips have entries from private sources such as diaries.

The Barbour Collection is available at the Connecticut State Library and The Connecticut Society of Genealogists Library
