About Vermont, Birth Records, 1909-2008

This data collection contains birth records from the state of Vermont from 1909-2008. The records consist of different types of birth certificates, including (1) Certificate of Birth, (2) Amended Certificate of Birth, (3), Delayed Certificate of Birth, and (4) Certificate of Birth for Foreign Born Child.

Information recorded on a birth certificate can vary according to the type of certificate and the year in which it was recorded. However, generally the following is listed:

  • Child’s name
  • Gender
  • Date and time of birth
  • Birthplace
  • Parents’ names (including mother’s maiden name)
  • Residence of parents

In Vermont births are recorded at the town level. Original birth records are therefore kept by the clerk of the town in which the birth took place. For the most part, microfilm copies of birth records are held by the Vermont Public Records Division in Montpelier. Records from the most recent years, however, are kept at the Vermont Vital Records Office by the Department of Health and Vital Statistics in Burlington.
