These are links to free, online Massachusetts Vital Records Collections for various towns in the state. They include birth records, marriage records, and death records usually up to 1850.

Most of these collections were researched by the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) and others were commissioned by other societies/groups.

NEHGS collections not currently available online for free include Ashfield, Charlestown, Eastham, Fairhaven, Harwich, Lowell, Marshfield, Milton, Montague, Otis, Pepperell, Sandisfield, Sandwich, Swansea, Taunton, and Truro.

Items included in italics are substitute vital records collections for Massachusetts towns not included in the NEHGS commissioned records collection or if it’s one of the above-named towns, the italics are a substitute for the NEHGS collection.
