All genealogical research depends on authentic vital and historical
records. Researchers of Stamford, Connecticut, an important New England
town founded in 1641, have long depended on flawed transcriptions and
abstracts of early town records. This new book, an extensively annotated
version of the Town of Stamford's 1882 transcription, rectifies that
situation. Paul R. Finch has consulted the original records (which are
fragile and partly illegible) and other primary sources, and
incorporated research by Donald Lines Jacobus and others. Finch's
extensive annotations fill gaps, correct errors, and offer helpful
explanations--as well as refer the reader to reliable sources. The end
result is a more complete and consistent view of Stamford's past: a
significant contribution to genealogical knowledge and the historical
"Finch's meticulous transcription and annotation of the earliest
Stamford Town Records will be invaluable to all researchers of early
Connecticut history and will lead to improved insights into the history
of this town and its first settlers."
-Robert Charles Anderson, FASG, director of the Great Migration study
