How to Obtain Connecticut Death Certificates

The state of Connecticut is considered to be one of the very best which maintained the records of the vital events such as marriages, births and deaths since early years. It was way back in 17th century when the county office started the registration of births, deaths and marriages in Connecticut.

Then around mid 17th century, the state of Connecticut made the registration of births, marriages, and deaths responsibility of the town clerk's who are liable to maintain the vital records of the state. There was still a flaw regarding the statewide registration because some of the town offices were not able to properly maintain and organize their vital records. Then there came a Revolution in the mid-nineteenth century, when the states actually started the statewide registration of the vital records. Same applies here in the state of Connecticut when the State Board of Health was established in 1870, and it bring in revolutionary amendments in the structure of recording the vital records and this is the reason why the registration of records improved a lot in each and every town of the state. The town clerks started collection of all the records in their respective towns and after 1 July 1897, copies were sent to the State Department of Health where each and every record was properly maintained
