Where did you file that important document? You know, the one that if lost, a great deal of time and effort (and money) will be required to recreate it?

Brush up on your knowledge of vital records by downloading a short powerpoint training session called Protecting Your Vital Records or by reviewing Managing Your Vital Records below.
