Vermont was originally claimed by the French explorer Samuel de Champlain in the early 1600’s. French settlers slowly populated the area, and by the 1720’s English settlers began migrating to the area. Vermont genealogy documentation, in the form of town and county records, date back to just after that time period, when permanent settlements were being formed.
