Welcome to the Connecticut
USGenWeb Obituary Project!

ADOPT ME!!

We encourage individuals with Connecticut Obituaries dated 1928 and before, to come forward with them. Please submit them to the forms at Connecticut USGenWeb Archives Obituaries & Death Notices

Ways You Can Help:

  1. You can help us by submitting a letter to the publisher of any local Connecticut Newspaper and get permission for current obits to be published. A sample letter can be found here.
  2. Go through old newspapers (published prior to 1923) and copy the obituaries found. We will also accept single obituaries that you have in your files. You can submit either complete obituaries or abstracts (just the facts) of the obituaries. Check with your local library to see what old newspapers they have on microfilm.
  3. Plese read the copyright law before submitting your obit(s).

Do you currently receive a CT Newspaper? If so you too could be part of this project by helping us create Abstract Obituaries from current data. Please contact the project for further details on this.
