Vermont Vital Records 1909-2008

Ancestry.com now has Vermont Vital Records from 1909-2008 available. This is a great new resource, especially for our members living far away from Vermont. The database includes births, marriages and deaths, and includes the images that would be seen if you had access to the microfilmed records at Vermont Archives. For those who have researched at Vermont Archives, you know of the frustrations of trying to decipher poor microfilm images. The records have all been digitized and should be much easier to view.
