Registry: Birth, death, and marriage
COVID-19 update: To apply for a marriage license, couples must apply together and in person. Due to a high volume of couples wanting to apply, our appointments are booked through May 2020. We will update this page with an online scheduler once our availability opens up. Please note: Massachusetts Law requires couples to have a valid marriage license to get married in the state.
For certified copies of Boston birth, death, and marriage certificates with a raised seal, please apply online or by mail. We are not taking in-person meetings for vital records at this time. For questions, please call 617-635-4175 or email email@example.com.
