About the MGS Website

Middlesex Genealogical Society

Fairfield County, Connecticut

The Middlesex Genealogical Society is located in the town of Darien, which is in Fairfield County, Connecticut, not far from New York City. Membership is open to all interested in family research, regardless of where they live.

The Middlesex Genealogical Society was established in 1982 for the purpose of encouraging those interested in researching their family history and to provide guidance to that end. The Society does not limit its focus to Darien or Fairfield County. It provides assistance for all researchers, wherever their ancestry leads.

A Newsletter is published quarterly.

The Society holds five program Meetings during the year in space provided by the Darien Library, presenting speakers on various topics of interest to all genealogists. These presentations are sponsored jointly by the Middlesex Genealogical Society and the Darien Library.

In addition, the Society maintains a small research Library at the Darien Library, and volunteers are available, by appointment, to help you with research problems, or just to get you started.

The Society is registered with the State of Connecticut, thereby giving members access to vital records at town and city record offices in Connecticut.

The name is derived from Middlesex Parish, the original name by which Darien, Connecticut, was known before becoming incorporated in 1820. The Society's founders were from Darien and chose "Middlesex" to honor the town.
