Connecticut Obituaries

Obituaries and death notices are the only two official forms of notification available when someone passes away. The difference between the two is that obituaries tend to be longer than death notices, and include more information. The information might include a more or less complete list of surviving family members, and personal and professional details about the deceased. Some obituaries read like a full life story, in fact. Death notices, on the other hand, are short and state the date of birth and death, and possibly information about any funeral service; they are largely record keeping documents.

Given their detailed nature, obituaries can then be a significant source of information in all kinds of historical research, and they are also invaluable for family trees. Obituary searches, however, are hardly ever quick, unless you know everything there is to know about an ancestor, which kind of defeats the purpose in the first place, don't you think?

Newspapers in Connecticut naturally carry an obituary section, and public libraries often keep detailed, extensive collections of back issues, so they are your primary source of information. Another source is nationwide online databases, some of which are big enough to accommodate the information you are looking for.

If what you need is a proof of someone's death, you don't even need to browse newspaper archives for obituaries. What you need is to contact the Connecticut State Department of Public Health, which keeps death records from 1897 to the present day. The Department also has death indexes from 1949 to the present. If you know where the death occurred, you can request a copy of the death certificate from the town official in the respective location. If you are not sure about the place, you can write to the central State Vital Statistics Office. It's worth noting that approaching the town record custodian will be much quicker in most cases -- processing time for vital record requests to the state office varies between six and eight weeks.

Another thing to bear in mind if you need a copy of a death certificate is that you can freely get one as long as you are over the age of 18. Unlike in many other states, you don't need to prove blood relationship, though you have to mention if there is one on the application form, along with the reason you are requesting the record. The copy you will get will include the cause of death, but it will not include the social security number of the decedent. Copies with social security numbers are only granted to a limited number of eligible parties; these include the surviving spouse, next of kin, funeral directors, and government agencies.

If you don't have the information necessary to make a successful request for a death certificate, then you may want to seek the assistance of library staff. Document searches are just part of the job for librarians and they have been specifically trained to conduct them. If you lack such training and don't have much of a background in research, this would be your best choice.

The Connecticut State Library, for one, holds all vital records issued prior to 1897, so if the information you are looking for is older, the CPL should be your first stop. The library also has a collection of census data, Civil War service records, and vital records, comprising information not just from the Vital Statistics Office, but also from church registers, newspapers, and probates. There are also vital records that have been derived from private writings, dating back centuries. While some of this information is available online in the form of detailed indexes, most is in paper form only and can only be viewed on site.

Smaller libraries could also be helpful, as they keep collections of back issues of local newspapers, and it is local newspapers that are more likely to carry an obituary that would not appear in large-circulation editions. Some local libraries offer a searchable obituary index containing data from several local newspapers. The Ferguson library in Stamford, for instance, has a search tool for obituaries published in one of seven local papers, with the total time period that they cover spanning from 1830 to present day. Another local library, in New London, boasts the full record of the New London Day paper, so if you are looking for an obituary likely to have appeared in it, this is the place to go.

In some ways, therefore, local libraries can be even more useful for the obituary searcher than more central or statewide ones. But libraries don't have all of their collections online and if you are pressed with time, heading to the net instead might be your best bet. There are many databases and most of them, unfortunately, don't really contain much information. Even so, there are a few that might prove helpful.

These include GenealogyBuff, where you can either make a name-based search, or browse 257 obituary collections from the state of Connecticut. Another extensive collection of obituaries is available at Obituary Central. Again, there is a direct search option along with a county-based collection of obituaries. Another option is searching the Connecticut Death Index, which covers 1949-2001.

In a further reminder that local may be better than central, when it comes to obituary searches, there are a lot of obituary information sources online on the county and town level. These include funeral homes that issue obituaries or daily service notices, county obituary collections, and the archives of local papers. Most local papers have only a short list of the latest obituaries in their digital version, but they certainly keep archives, which, although they may not be available online, should be accessible in person.

Patience is essential when embarking on an obituary search, especially if you don't have much information about the person to start with. Before you start looking for the obituary, you will have to gather all the details that would make finding it easier, and this frequently takes time. But given the ample information resources both online and offline, an obituary search is by no means an impossible mission.

Connecticut Post

Newspaper in Bridgeport, Connecticut

The Connecticut Post is a daily newspaper located in Bridgeport, Connecticut. It serves Fairfield County and the Lower Naugatuck Valley. Municipalities in the Post's circulation area include Ansonia, Bridgeport, Darien, Derby, Easton, Fairfield, Milford, Monroe, New Canaan, Orange, Oxford, Redding, Ridgefield, Seymour, Shelton, Stratford, Trumbull, Weston, Westport and Wilton. The newspaper is owned and operated by the Hearst Corporation, a multinational corporate media conglomerate with $4 billion in revenues. The Connecticut Post also gains revenue by offering classified advertising for job hunters with minimal regulations and separate listings for products and services.

The Post[edit]

The paper has a weekday circulation of 53,866, a Saturday circulation of 41,768, and a Sunday circulation of 80,840, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulation, behind the Hartford Courant (264,539) and the New Haven Register (89,022). It is southwestern Connecticut's largest circulation daily newspaper.[2] The paper competes directly with the Register in Stratford, Milford, and portions of the Lower Naugatuck Valley. Since June 2017, the Post and the Register have been under common ownership, with management led first by Hearst Connecticut Media Group president Paul Barbetta and since May 2019 by his successor Mike Deluca.[3][4]

The publisher is Mike Deluca[5] who is also the president of Hearst Connecticut Media Group. Recent editor James H. Smith departed abruptly on June 26, 2008. No reason was given to staff, but Smith later attributed his departure to "mutual agreement."[6] Smith had attempted to take the newspaper in a different direction, stressing slice-of-life style features and enterprise and investigative work while downplaying court/police coverage. In recent years he avoided layoffs despite economic pressures, opting instead to offer buyouts and drastically cut the freelance budget. In October 2019 Wendy Metcalfe was named editor-in-chief of Hearst Connecticut Media on the abrupt ouster of Matt Derienzo.[7]

The Post employs seven editors within their departments including a digital news editor, sports editor, arts & entertainment editor, business editor, features editor, editorial page editor and photo editor. These editors work along with the managing editor and two assistant managing editors to build the newspaper daily.[8]

The Post's coverage area presents problems as Bridgeport, Connecticut's largest city, is a poor and mostly minority area, while the surrounding eastern Fairfield County and western New Haven County area is affluent and mostly white.[citation needed] Consequently, while the Post does provide solid coverage of Bridgeport, most of the paper is composed of local stories regarding the surrounding towns.

History[edit]

The newspaper was formerly the morning Bridgeport Telegram and evening Bridgeport Post before consolidating into a morning publication. The Bridgeport Telegram[9] ran from at least 1908 to 1929 and again from 1938 to 1990.[10] Until the mid-1980s the Post was published as an afternoon paper and the Telegram was the morning paper.[11]

In 1981, a Post wire service editor died at his desk while a Girl Scout troop was touring the newsroom.[12]

In 1986, a young staffer at the Post office dropped his coat with a handgun in it, and accidentally shot a bullet into the ceiling. The man had become a drug dealer on the side and was arrested in the lobby for selling cocaine by an undercover police officer working as a janitor at the building.

In 2017, the Post's offices moved from 410 State St. to 1057 Broad St. The Post had been operating at the State Street location since 1928. The change in office space was made after deciding to downsize after most of the staff had moved to Hearst Connecticut Media's headquarters in Norwalk, CT. Only 20 employees made up of local reporters, editors and photographers work at the new location.[13]

The Post was formerly owned by Thomson Corporation, a national newspaper chain. In 2000, Thomson agreed to sell the Post for $205 million to MediaNews Group, based in Denver, Colorado, which also owned newspapers in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.[14]

On August 8, 2008 the Hearst Corporation acquired the Connecticut Post (Bridgeport) and www.ConnPost.com, including seven non-daily newspapers, from MediaNews Group, Inc., and assumed management control of three additional daily newspapers in Fairfield County, including The Advocate (Stamford), Greenwich Time (Greenwich), and The News-Times (Danbury), which had been managed for Hearst by MediaNews under a management agreement that began in April 2007.[15] Overall, the company publishes 24 dailies and 56 weeklies across the country.[16]

The Hearst Corporation also has ownership in global financial services, cable channels A&E, History, Lifetime and ESPN, television stations, including WCVB-TV in Boston, and over 300 magazines.[17]

In 2010, the Connecticut Post launched a complete re-design which included a new font and re-designed Connecticut Post header.

Some significant stories the Post has broken[citation needed] include former Bridgeport Mayor Joseph Ganim's bribery scandal and former Bridgeport Mayor John Fabrizi's admission of using cocaine.

In 2008, under Smith's leadership, the Connecticut Post received its first Newspaper of the Year Award from the New England Newspaper Association.[18]

Comedian and actor Richard Belzer, a Bridgeport native, was a paperboy and later a staff reporter for the Post, before pursuing his career as an entertainer.[19]

Tips for a Successful Connecticut Post Obituary Search

Genealogy research can be challenging as many records are incomplete or filled with mistakes. For a successful Connecticut Post obituary search, it’s good to have multiple strategies at your disposal to ensure you get the correct relative.

Most older obituaries will include some pieces of family information. Obituaries can be used to uncover information about other relatives or to confirm that you have the right person in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

For a successful search of Connecticut Post obituaries, follow these tips:

  • Use information from more recent ancestors to find older relatives.
  • Try searching by initials. Many old Connecticut Post obits used initials instead of full names.
  • Are you looking for a female relative? Try searching for their husband’s name.
  • Perform searches by using common misspellings. TITLE editors often didn’t fact-check spellings in the past.

By implementing these strategies, you can go deeper with your research and uncover the ancestors you never knew you had. It’s also ideal for fact-checking, as many obituaries weren’t necessarily created with 100% accuracy.

How to Find Connecticut Death Notices in the Connecticut Post

Finding death notices in the Connecticut Post can be another vital source of genealogical research. But what’s the difference between a death notice and an obituary?

Although some people use the terms interchangeably, they’re actually two different things. Obituaries describe the person, who they are, and what they did in their lives. Death notices, on the other hand, are formalized reports of someone’s death.

Family members would have published death notices in the Connecticut Post to detail the person’s name, age, residence, and any information about the funeral service. As family members typically wrote these, they tend to be relatively accurate.

Death notices can help extract more information about an ancestor and uncover where they happen to be buried. So, how do you look up local death notices and sift through hundreds of years’ worth of history? If you want to find death notices alongside Connecticut Post obits, follow these tips:

  • Include Boolean operators and proximity search techniques.
  • Use multiple collections to fact-check any found records.
  • Connect other family members mentioned in the death notice to confirm whole sections of your family tree.

The Connecticut Post records are invaluable sources of historical information about local people. We make it easy for you to search, discover, and share your family’s untold story.
