COMMENTS

"Connected" means "connected by edges", rotations and reflections are not considered different, but the internal arrangement of the dominoes does matter.
I have verified the first three entries by hand. The terms 255 and 2874 were taken from the Vicher web page.  N. J. A. Sloane.

a(6) and a(7) from Owen Whitby, Nov 18 2009
a(8) from Anton Betten, Jan 18 2013, added by N. J. A. Sloane, Jan 18 2013. Anton Betten also verified that a(0)a(7) are correct.
a(9) from Anton Betten, Jan 25 2013, added by N. J. A. Sloane, Jan 26 2013. Anton Betten comments that he used 8 processors, each for about 1 and a half day (roughly 300 hours CPU time).
a(10) from Aaron N. Siegel, May 18 2022. [It took just 30 minutes to verify a(9) and 7.2 hours to compute a(10), on a single CPU core!]
