Genealogical Research

If you are a current member of a genealogical society that is incorporated or authorized to do business or conduct affairs in Connecticut, you are entitled to access all vital records except confidential files related to adoption, paternity, surrogacy agreements, and sex amendments related to gender re-assignment (see the current list of incorporated genealogical societies on the CT State Library Website). Also, note that genealogists may not access the social security numbers on vital records consistent with federal law.

If you would like access to the Windsor Locks Vital records you may make an appointment by calling (860) 624-1441 to do genealogical research or you may do research with the State Vital Records Office at (860) 509-7955.  The vital records registry maintained by the State only contains records from 1897 to the present.  For older records, you will need to contact the local vital records office or the Connecticut State Library.

You are required to provide your valid genealogical research card at the time of your appointment.
