Welcome ... my name is Linda-Jeanne Dolby and I'm responsible for Litchfield County. I do not actually live in Litchfield County, but my roots are here and my interest in genealogy and the USGenWeb project in particular, have led me to volunteer my time. Please contact me if you would like to contribute in any way to this project or to adopt one of the towns located within Litchfield County to further develop the resources of that town. Any help will be appreciated.
I hope you enjoy your visit and come back soon !
