The large number of surnames with only one or two entries reflects the growing use of compound surnames, and also keystroke errors by the persons entering the data into the datasets we later acquired, or misspellings or ambiguous handwriting in the information they read.
In early October 2023, millions of new entries were added from Connecticut birth, marriage, civil union and death indices. Special thanks to Reclaim The Records
for acquiring this information. Please consider donating to them. Many thousands of new cemetery entries have also been added. Check all your genealogy names again. You may find a valuable record through this index.
