Vermont Vital Records Information

Vermont Vital Records
Vital record registration in Vermont is recorded at the town level. The vital records are incomplete before mandatory registration began in 1857. However, it is not uncommon to find an entire family recorded as a family group before 1820. In some cases, although the event was recorded in a particular town, it may have actually occurred in another town or state where the family previously resided, and not all events for a family were recorded. Marriages and deaths in the pre 1857 period were less likely to be recorded.

For births, marriages, and deaths within the last ten years, write:
