Connecticut Census

Today we updated and added to our Connecticut census records on Access Genealogy. For those looking for free census records for Connecticut, you will be disheartened by what we found. Other then the major free census available mainly at the Pilot project at Family Search, there were minimal transcriptions done. Basically, if you're conducting extensive census research in CT then you're likely going to have to pay.

Most free transcriptions online are done by volunteers who have an interest in the town or county being researched. While there are some great websites out there for Connecticut research, very few appear to have concentrated their efforts on census transcriptions.

The federal government conducted census in Connecticut every 10 years since 1790. All counties in CT were formed prior to 1790, so all counties have all exisiting census records (1790-1930) online. There were no state census conducted in Connecticut.
