Records may be obtained directly from the Town Office. You will need to provide positive identification, and if requesting the record of a parent or grandparent and you are not a registered genealogist, proof of direct lineage.

While most requests for vital records are honest attempts to obtain one's own personal documentation, some are not; some are attempts to obtain information and documents needed to assume another person's identity. These documents can be used to obtain a driver's license, state photo ID, social security card, and passport under the assumed name, opening the door to credit card, bank and tax fraud; mail theft, and social security and insurance fraud. The requirement that you provide identification when requesting a copy of record helps to protect you and your family from this type of crime.
Acceptable forms of identification include a driver's license, passport, or other government-issued photo identification.
If you do not have acceptable photo identification, you may present two items with your name on it from the following list: a utility bill, a bank statement, a car registration, a copy of an income tax return, a personal check with address, a previously issued vital record or marriage license, a letter from a government agency requesting a vital record (for example, the Maine Department of Health and Human Services), a Department of Corrections identification card, a Social Security card, a DD214, a hospital birth worksheet, a license or rental agreement, a pay stub (W-2), a voter registration card, and a school or employee photo ID. Other forms of identification listing your name, date of birth, and address may also be considered.
The first copy is $15, and additional copies of the same vital record are $6 if purchased at the same time.
