Two new volumes have been added to the North American Cemetery Transcriptions from NEHGS Manuscripts, 1642-1977 database which provide extensive coverage of Weston and Wilton in Fairfield County, Connecticut. The indexing efforts of our volunteers has produced over 15,000 new records and 45,000 searchable names. The new volumes are:

  • CT, Fairfield: Weston (CT WES 40)
  • CT, Fairfield: Wilton (Mss A 2777)

Both manuscripts were written by Francis Ferdinand Spies in 1934 and are in the NEHGS manuscripts collection. They contain inscriptions copied from the graveyards, arranged with genealogical and historical notes and an index. Weston and Wilton are next to each other in southwestern Connecticut. The indexing for these records includes birth and death records with full names, cemetery locations, and names of parents and spouses where available.

This update is made possible by the efforts of our volunteer Edna Curtin. If you have some time available and would like to get involved in the digitizing and indexing process, locally or remotely, please contact Rachel Adams, Database Services Volunteer Coordinator via email at rachel.adams@nehgs.org.
