Vital Records


In order to obtain copies of vital records, an individual must prove that they are permitted by law to do so. Those authorized to obtain a copy of a vital record include:

  • The person named on the record
  • The person’s spouse or registered domestic partner
  • The parent(s) named on the record
  • Descendants of the person named on the record (including children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren to the most remote degree)
  • The legal custodian, guardian, or authorized representative of the person named on the record, and
  • Genealogists who have a researcher card issued by the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Data, Research, and Vital Statistics

The requestor of a record must present proof of identification and must also present proof of direct and legitimate interest in the record if they are acquiring a record other than their own.
