The soundex index for CT naturalizations until 1906 are available on microfilm through the FHC (CT records for the 'Index to New England Naturalization Petitions: 1791-1906). It will tell you if, when, and where they were naturalized. From there you just have to find the actual records. Goto familysearch.org and goto the FHL catalogue, do a search for CT and then choose naturalization & citizenship-indexes. Then you just need to know the soundex code. The FHC also has some naturalization records for the circuit & district courts. Unfortunately, they don't have the records for New Haven's Superior Court, I have to ask NARA - Waltham branch for the records I need.
Don't forget to get all the paperwork. The final naturalization papers & certificate doesn't have as much info as the Declaration of Intention (1st papers) & Petition for Naturalization. Personally, I'm hoping it will help with my Irish side, can't find parents names or where in Ireland they came from. I was told the naturalization records were sketchy & didn't require a lot of info, but I am hoping.
