Obtaining certified copies of a Birth Certificate
The only records of birth on file with the Town Clerk are of those children who were physically born in the Town of Freetown, or whose parents were residing in Freetown at the time of the child's birth and was born in a Massachusetts hospital. Births of children born in RI or any other state have to be obtained from that particular state because the records do not crossover the state line.
To obtain a (1)certified copy of a birth record by mail, please send the request including the name and date of birth, a check in the amount of $10.00 made payable to the Town of Freetown and a stamped, self-addressed envelope to: Town Clerk, P O Box 438, Assonet, MA 02702. We will mail back the certified copy of the record the day we receive the request and check.
NOTE: Please call the Town Clerk's Office BEFORE making online payment/request, if you are not sure that the record is on file in Freetown. 508-644-2201 ext 2
