Derby Vital Records Transcript at the Connecticut State Library and NEHGS
"The vital records of Derby prior to 1852 are found scattered through the first seven volumes of Land Records, the first book of Town Meetings and Volume 1 of Births, Marriages and Deaths.
This alphabetical list was taken from a set of cards based on the publication in 1901 of volumes 1 and 2 of Land Records under the title 'Town Records of Derby, Connecticut, 1655-1710' by the Sarah Riggs Humphreys Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, and a manuscript copy of the later vital records made in 1914 by Miss Ethel L. Scofield, of New Haven, Conn. Reference to the printed book is indicated by the original pagination and volume numbers of the Land Records, to Volumes 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 of Land Records by the volume number and the abbreviation 'LR' and to the book of Town Meetings by the abbreviation 'TM'.
The Scofield Copy, now in the possession of the Connecticut State Library, has not been compared with the original and doubtless errors exist. It is hoped that as errors or omissions are found notes will be entered in this volume and on the cards which are included in the General Index of Connecticut Vital Records also in the possession of the Connecticut State Library.
