These are Washburn family vital record abstracts from Randolph, Vermont.

Randolph is in the southwest corner of Orange County, in the center of the
state of Vermont. It shares borders with Brookfield, Tunbridge and
Braintree, Orange County, and Bethel, Windsor County, and is very close to
Royalton and Rochester, Windsor County, and Roxbury, Washington County. The
vital records are not published, but are available on microfilm through the

The first Washburn settlers in Randolph were from Middleborough, MA, the
