Since 1996 Vermont has maintained a Voluntary Adoption Registry. Information available are typical non-identifying information, identifying information of birth family, and a copy of the original birth certificate. Any birth family member, adoptee, guardian of adoptee or descendants of a deceased adoptee can request non-identifying information. Any birth family or adult aged (18) adoptee can request identifying information. All copies of the original birth certificate require either a letter from the Registry or a court order from the probate court.

Parcel information for Vermont is handled by local town governments. Most towns will maintain a gis layer or provide parcel information for download, but not all towns have information so easily available. Some town parcel information has been combined at the Vermont Center for Geographic Information.
