Browse the online databases, published guides, and indexes to locate and learn how to use collections at the Vermont State Archives. See Explore Vermont Archival Records. Before you visit the archives, spend some time becoming familiar with the collections listed in these databases and guides.
Discover collections that may document your ancestor that have not been thought of before. For example, the Research Guide page includes a list of agency records available in the Vermont State Archives. Choose the agency for which you want to locate records, such as "Vermont State Hospital" collection, Submit Query, and available Vermont State Hospital records will be listed, including Patient Records, 1891-1969. You may also search by keyword, by both agency and keyword, or using other options on the page.
