Adoption Records

Adoptive birth records are obtained the same way a regular birth certificate are obtained. If an adoptee was born in another state, then you must apply in that state. Original birth certificates of adoptees are confidential records and must recieve a written court order to unseal.

There are voluntary services for adoption information and registration where people can submit their information and make it available for direct family to find.

Property Records

Connecticut property records can be found by accessing the local town assessor's department. Some additional data is availble from the gis department. Property tax information is obtained directly from the assessor.
