Like Connecticut, Vermont town clerks are responsible for vital records and deeds, while probate records are recorded in district offices.

Vital records can be found as early as 1760, although mandatory recording only began in 1857. The Vermont State Archives ( maintains state copies, as well as a statewide index, and will conduct research by mail. Additional records and online indexes, including naturalisations, are also available from here.
