The Connecticut State Library and the Family History Library also have an index to the entire 1790 to 1850 censuses (listed in the Family History Library Catalog under CONNECTICUT - CENSUS - INDEXES). The page numbers of this index do not always match those on microfilms at the National Archives and the Family History Library.
