Vital Records of Franklin County Vermont


US GenWeb

General Information

Statewide vital registration in Vermont began in 1857, when the General Assembly passed legislation requiring towns to report all births, marriages, and deaths to the Secretary of State. Prior to that time, some towns kept such records in order to resolve questions concerning the distribution and inheritance of property.

Early Birth, Marriage and Death records may be requested from the town clerk of the town in which an event occurred. Please contact the specific clerk for current instructions and fees. See town page for contact information.
