|A New Fairfield County Lineage Society
The Fairfield County Chapter of OGS is proud to announce the introduction of a new Lineage Society. The Fairfield County Settlers recognizes and celebrates the early settlers of our county who settled here between 1821 and 1851. To become a member of Fairfield County Settlers, you must prove that your ancestor lived in Fairfield County
between 1 January 1821 and 31 December 1850.
The geographical area considered Fairfield County is depicted in this map. (View here) Since these boundaries changed, the documentation proving residency must specify "Fairfield County".
The Fairfield County Settlers fill-in PDF application can be downloaded here. This application can be saved to your personal computer and optionally completed electronically.
