Vital records are the most basic paperwork of human life, the tangible evidence of the three most important events: birth, death and marriage. In Massachusetts, these events have been registered at the local level since 1635 and formally collected by the state since 1841.  On display this month are a few examples of the forms that vital records take.  Stop by and take a look.
