Vital records registration started in New York State outside of New York City in 1881. Generally, the New York State Department of Health provides uncertified copies of vital records for genealogy research purposes, however, the Town of Marlborough may have them on file if the person was born, pronounced deceased or obtained their marriage license in Marlborough and meet the following criteria:

  • Birth certificates - if on file for at least 75 years and the person whose name is on the birth certificate is known to be deceased.
  • Death certificates - if on file for at least 50 years.
  • Marriage certificates - if on file for at least 50 years and both spouses are known to be deceased.
Fees vary and can be found on the Application for Genealogical Services which must be filled out to request records.  Please call the Town Clerk for additional instructions.
