Focused on southwestern Connecticut


The Society maintains active contact with historical societies and libraries having significant genealogical and local history collections relating to southwestern Connecticut. A list of repositories is maintained for the public on our website.


Our three hubs each host three events per calendar year. Stamford Historical Society is in the west, Trumbull Library is in the east, and Danbury Public Library is in the north. The choice of Stamford, Trumbull and Danbury is designed to reach the three points of the triangular shaped Fairfield County. The annual meeting is normally centrally located, recently at the Fairfield Museum & History Center.


Since our inception, we have maintained a close and mutually beneficial relationship with the Ferguson Library in Stamford which houses our collection in the Stamford Room. Our manuscripts are primarily housed at the New Canaan Historical Society, though we have facilitated member donations to other historical societies in Fairfield County.


We are a charter member of the New England Regional Genealogical Conference, which holds a major biennial conference in New England, and a member of the national Federation of Genealogical Societies.


Society board members take an active role in addressing issues of vital records access and other concerns of genealogists.
