Prior to 1892, records of births, marriages, and deaths were kept by the towns and cities. Some of these records survived in good condition, while others perished in natural disasters. The information in these municipal records is often sparser than that found in modern records.

Birth, Death, Divorce & Marriage records since 1923 can be found at the Office of Vital Statistics. If divorce records are not available at the State office, they might be available from the Clerk of the District Court in the judicial division where the divorce was granted.

Birth, Death, Divorce & Marriage records prior to 1892 can be found at the town clerk offices in the town where the event occurred. You can also find them here:
