To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

A complete catalog, inventory, index, log, report, or other listing of (1) all the books in your possession or control which registrars used to record birth, marriages, deaths, and burials before 1900 (including any Land Records books and/or Town or Proprietors Meeting/Minutes/Record books which include any records of birth, marriages and deaths) and (2) other books, records, and documents in your possession or control which index, copy, regroup, reference or support town birth, deaths and marriages, including communications or reports of communication from ministers, justices of the peace, sextons, and other witnesses to any aspect of births, marriages, burials, and/or deaths prior to 1900.

I also request that, if possible and pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stat. § 1-212(d), fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest and not made for commercial gain. The requested documents will be processed by a representative of the news media/press and made available to the public at MuckRock.com.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 4 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Linda MacLachlan

From: Town Clerk of Milford, CT

Dear Linda MacLachlan:

In regards to your FOI request of August 28, 2018 we have no records responsive to this request.
In, addition the State Vital Records do not fall under the freedom of information statues because they are governed by their own statues.

Sincerely,

Joanne M. Rohrig, CCTC
City Clerk & Registrar of Vital Statistics
City of Milford
70 West River Street
Milford, CT 06460

I am not asking for early vital records. I am simply asking whether you in fact have any. I have been advised that Milford has deposited what it describes as 6 volumes of “Births, Marriages, and Deaths, 1649-1874” in the Connecticut State Archives in Hartford. Does this mean that you no longer possess even a photostat copy of these records? Is there any point in my coming to your office to view them or any other pre Civil War vital records when I am in town next month?
Thank you,
Linda Mac:Lachlan
