Janet Krompier has volunteered to do "look ups" from "The Barbour Collection of Connecticut Town Vital Records" for the neighboring town of Norfolk 1758-1850. Please be as specific as possible.....preferrably providing both the given name and surname as there are many listings for the same surname. Also, please specify "Norfolk vital record look up" in the subject line of your e-mail.

Thankyou Janet!!!
