The Barbour Collection of Connecticut town vital records at the Connecticut State Library in Hartford is one of the last great genealogical manuscript collections to be published. Covering 137 towns and comprising 14,333 typed pages, this magnificent collection of birth, marriage, and death records to about 1850 was the life work of General Lucius Barnes Barbour, Connecticut Examiner of Public Records from 1911 to 1934. In the summer of 2002, Genealogical Publishing Company reached a major milestone with the release of the final volumes in this series--Volumes 51-55. The Barbour Collection is now the single largest series of books ever published by GPC. Volume 1 in the series, offered on this page, is a transcription of the vital records of the first three towns covered in the collection--Andover, Ashford (comprising 90 percent of the volume), and Avon.
