Scope and Content

These are birth reports filled out for the county clerk to fulfill the requirement which went into effect in 1898 that all births must be reported to the county clerk. There is an individual card for each birth, and the clerk used the information on these cards to create the birth register. Information on the cards and in the birth register should be the same: parents names, place of residence, sex of child, race, date and place of birth, and signature of physician or midwife. In 1905, the state passed a law requiring each county to file a uniform certificate with the State Bureau of Vital Statistics.
