Land Records:  Grantor/Grantee indexes for the Town of Litchfield land recordings are searchable on-line via www.uslandrecords.com dating back to 11/25/1981.  Documents may be viewed free of charge.  Printing fees do apply.  We respectfully ask that title searchers continue to do as much work as possible on-line prior to coming to the office for access to earlier records. We will be limiting the number of people in the vault so as to avoid a crowd. It will be on a first come first serve basis.

The office of the Town Clerk is one of the oldest positions in government and the duties and responsibilities are vast and numerous. In this office all records of the town are faithfully recorded, filed, maintained and preserved in accordance with State Statute. This includes all land records; maps and surveys; vital records such as births, deaths, marriages and burial records; military discharges; election results; town ordinances; committee and commission memberships, meeting schedules, notices and minutes; trade name certificates; liquor licenses; and notary appointments, to name a few. Many of our records go back to the 1700 and 1800’s and most records are available to the public during regular business hours.

In addition to being the official records keeper the Town Clerk is the keeper of the Town Seal; administering oaths, witnessing signatures and affixing the town seal to all official town documents. The Town Clerk serves as Registrar of Vital Statistics, an elections officer responsible for the ordering of election supplies, the issuing and accounting of all absentee ballots & the certification of election results; and as an agent of the State of Connecticut. Other duties include, but are not limited to, the collection of real estate conveyance tax, open space penalties and ZBA fees; issuing marriage licenses and certified copies of vital records; appointing unaffiliated JP’s; the annual registration of dogs; the sale of sportsmen’s licenses; and the assistance with voter registration. In the Town of Litchfield the Clerk’s office is the official posting place for agendas and legal notices. Pistol permit applications are found here. Landfill permits and tickets are available here. It is where Sandy Beach passes are issued and town ornaments are sold.

The Town Clerk’s office is a source of information for the public, visitors and residents alike. Inquiries are made, questions are answered, research is conducted, and genealogical puzzles are solved. We welcome every opportunity to serve the public.
