How to Obtain Vermont Death Certificates

Vital records registrations in Vermont were recorded at the town level since the very beginning. The mandatory legislation was made in 1857 which made it compulsory for the citizen of the state to get their vital events registered with the state department of health. There are some cases, where the event was recorded in a particular town but it was recorded in another town where the family may have resided earlier or there are some instances where the whole records of the families are not available due to some exceptional issues. No one can have direct access to the records in Vermont State until and unless if he/she can show adequate relationship or any personal interest with the record he/she is asking for. Marriages and deaths in the pre 1857 period were less likely to be recorded by the county clerk, so the authenticity of the date available prior to 1857 is still a question mark.

However, for some certain reasons, if you want to access the data prior to 1857 (if available), you can write to the clerk of the county in question who is responsible for the issuance of the certificates and collection of and maintenance of the older vital statistics records with himself.

Death records or death certificates (MCCD), Are a substantial part of the legal process. This significant information is vital to state and local government official. The state death record database contains information about a person's death, location, date, time, residence. Sometimes the names of the mother and father, and Even the physician who declares vital statistics and the cause of a person's death. Death records have long been used to help with ancestry, research. They are considered to be "primary source" records, because the information is recorded by an eye witness, at the time the death takes place.
