Vermont vital records cost $10, for the most part. For five years, they are stored in the Department of Health Vital Records section, after which Vermont birth and death records are transferred to the Secretary of State, specifically in the State Archives and Records Administration. Vermont birth records and Vermont death records are available dating back to 1909. A copy of either certificate can be paid for by check or money order to the Department of Health or Secretary of State respectively. For records before 1909, contact the county clerk where the event occurred. Vermont is one of the three states that existed as a country before being admitted to the United States, like California and Texas. It was not recognized as a state after the beginning of the Revolutionary War due to property arguments with New York. Vermont was admitted to the Union in 1791.
