Connecticut Ancestry Society
Stamford, Connecticut. This, the oldest genealogical society in Connecticut, was founded in 1954 by a small group of genealogists in southwestern Connecticut. Then known as the Stamford Genealogical Society, the title of its bulletin was changed in 1971 to Connecticut Ancestry. Finally, in 1989, the organization's name was officially changed to Connecticut Ancestry Society, Inc. The mission of Connecticut Ancestry Society is to promote genealogical scholarship, preserve source material, and exchange family histories. Connecticut Ancestry Society members share a special interest in southwestern Connecticut and its neighborhood, either by living there, or by having ancestry there, or both.
