Thrifty Thursday: Newtown, Connecticut BMD now online

Posted by Jim Sanders on Thursday, 14 February, 2013

Hidden Genealogy Nuggets is now hosting an index to Newtown, Connecticut Birth, Death & Marriage Records Index Search 1850 – 1895. This index is made possible through the efforts of Bob Pittman, Jeannine Wegmueller, Harlan Jessup, and the kind folks at the Genealogy Club of Newtown, Connecticut. The programming behind this index was also the work of Bob Pittman. Although I did not help in the indexing of this project as a member of the Genealogy Club of Newtown, Connecticut I am more than happy to host this index on this website.

There are thousands of names within this index. My own ancestor Orrin Shepard is listed within the database. If you have Newtown, Connecticut ancestors, be sure to stop by and search the index. I do not believe this index exists anywhere else on the Internet.
