Questions:  Are there any problems with this series we should be aware of?  Does Bailey tend to be accurate in his transcriptions?  Are there any major known gaps in his coverage of the available materials?

Many of these marriages are also covered in the Connecticut Church records indexes (at the Connecticut State Library but available on Ancestry.com.) I haven't noted any major discrepancies when I've found a marriage in both places.

Thanks for the list of all of them
Happy to oblige, Anne.  Thank you for the answer to my question.  Do you happen to know whether the databases at the library and at Ancestry are all or partly based on these volumes?
The Connecticut Church Record Indexes were built from the original church book records. The CT Library archives built the indexes, so users wouldn't wear out the originals. Bailey predates the indexes and also would have used the original church books.
Thank you for the clarification, Anne.
