About Us

Our Society was founded in 1954 as the Stamford Genealogical Society and is the oldest genealogical society in Connecticut. The organization's name was officially changed to Connecticut Ancestry Society, Inc., in 1989. The Society's membership now extends throughout North America with only about half living in Connecticut. The Board of Governors consists of an elected president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer together with officers appointed by the board, including the editor, genealogist, and librarian.


In support of the Society's mission we sponsor workshops and lectures throughout the year. The Society's scholarly journal, Connecticut Ancestry, is published quarterly in August, November, February and May. All the work of the Society is done by volunteers with both professional and amateur genealogists actively participating.
