This database contains the records of births, marriages, and deaths filed with the state of Vermont between the years 1909 and 2008. These records are currently held by the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration. The collection includes more than 950,000 birth records, more than 1.3 million marriage records, and more than 600,000 death records. Names of parents and spouses have also been indexed, when available.
The records held in this collection refer to the statewide index of vital records maintained by the Vermont State Archives. Town clerks were required to send copies of vital records to the state beginning in 1857. The state government began creating a statewide index to these records in 1919. The original vital records are still held at the town level. It may be possible to obtain a copy of the original record by contacting the corresponding town clerk's office.
Earlier Vermont vital records, ranging from the year 1720 to 1908, are not available online at this time; but, they will be added to our digital collections in the future. Records of births, marriages, and deaths that occurred in the past five years are located at the Vermont Vital Records Office.
