Vital Records for Scipio Center

We get lots of requests for vital records from folks researching their family history. A grant-funded project completed in Cayuga County a few years ago has made it easier to provide copies of those important documents.
Most of the vital records available at the Scipio Town Hall begin in 1847. Birth and death records end in 1850, then start again in 1882. Marriage records end in 1865, then begin again in 1882.
There are some gaps after that through the present day, but we are always glad to look and see what might be available.
Another set of records that are often overlooked are burial permits. Other than a handful from 1905, our earliest burial permit is from April of 1936.
