Vermont Genealogy Records

Many people today are interested in learning more about their past and their ancestors. As a result Genealogy is one of the most common terms in search engines on the World Wide Web. For those who are new to the world of Genealogy, there are many ways one can find information regarding their ancestors. Some of the most common forms of public records used for genealogy are: For Birth Records In Vermont, records are transferred from the Vital Records Section to a separate institution after a specified amount of time in Vermont, this institution is called the State Archives and Records Administration. What makes Vermont so unique is that it chooses to transfer birth records from the Vital Records Section to the State Archives after a period of only five years. For Death Records Some death records in Vermont actually reach back as far as 1760, making them truly worthwhile as historical documents. In Vermont, the most recent death records (those from within the last five years) are kept by the Vital Records Section. Earlier records are housed at the State Archives and Records Administration. For Obituaries The hunt for Vermont obituaries can be difficult considering that there are almost no online resources you can go to for archived information. Your best bet is to check out the web pages for various newspapers throughout the state or the websites for libraries dotted throughout the state. You can check the Middlebury community website that contains a lot of information on death and marriage notices, and sometimes formal obituaries, but in general your best bet is going to be local newspaper websites. Finding Vermont obituary records can be difficult and you may need to contact these papers by phone or by mail to see if hard copies can be mailed out to you if they don't have the archives online that you are looking for. For Marriages Vermont marriage records can be ordered from the Town or City Clerk where the marriage license was originally issued. More recent Vermont marriage records are kept by the Vital Records Section of the Health Department if they are less than five years old. After that, Vermont marriage records are under the control of the State Archives and Records Administration.
