We recently consolidated some of our links into one single link in order to make some of the longer pages easier to navigate. It reduced the number of total links so our overall number of records went down, but the quality of the links was improved.
We also added records from several public libraries in Connecticut, as well as the Connecticut State Library. We also added links to Sanborn maps from the Library of Congress, partial indexes for smaller localities from the 1940 census, transcriptions of some records in Massachusetts, books from Archive.org, added indexes from Every Name Index, and added yearbooks from Ancestry.com, E Yearbook, MyHeritage, and Classmates.com. We also corrected some broken links that were no longer working.
