Question: Is it true that the Registry of Vital Records has digitized some of the Birth records and have them online?
Answer: They have scanned all the births recorded in Massachusetts from 1953 to 1986. They are not online for searching however. The records are on an intranet at the Mass. Department of Vital Records for researchers. You can not print or save them, however these are clear PDF image scans.
