Birth, Death, and Marriage
The Town Clerk is the Registrar of Vital Records for the Town and can provide copies of all birth, death, and marriage records that are on file in the Clerk’s office. Princeton has vital records dating back to 1744.
Certified copies of birth, death, and marriage certificates are $10 for each copy. You can request them in person at the Clerk’s office, or you can download the form and request copies by mail. Every effort will be made to reply to your request on the day it is received, but the process may take up to 10 days.
If you are requesting an older record as part of a Genealogical search there may be an additional charge if some of the required information is not available and research is necessary.
The following records are available:
Records are available for any couple who filed Marriage Intentions in Princeton whether or not the marriage took place in Princeton. If intentions were not filed in town then the Clerk’s office will not have the marriage certificate even if the couple was married in Princeton. If you filed Marriage Intentions in another Massachusetts community then the Marriage License certificate would be filed with that community.“Form to request a Marriage certificate”
