Vital Records

Birth Certificates
Birth Certificates from 1961-2005 can NOT be purchased online at this time.

Please be advised, as part of a preservation project to protect Winthrop’s Vital Records, beginning March 13th birth records from 2005 back to 1961 will not be available in Winthrop.

Please read the below information to become familiar with the options during this time:

Birth records are located usually in two places – the actual city in which the birth occurred and the city the child was living in at the time of birth. Therefore – you may want to contact the city in which the actual birth took place – Boston for most of Winthrop Residents.
