Summary of Records

These records contain Kane County birth registers recorded during the years 1900 through 1905.

Scope and Content

These records contain birth registers recorded during the years 1900 through 1905. Each entry has the name of child, date of birth, sex, race, color, parents' names, residence, name of informant making the report, and an assigned number.
Beginning in 1898, physicians and midwives were required to keep record of each birth at which they assisted professionally. In their absence, parents were required to make a report. They then reported quarterly to the county clerk or in the case of incorporated cities, to the local board of health and they would in turn report to the county clerk. (Revised Statutes of Utah 1898, Title 57, p. 474-475)
In 1905, the state passed a law requiring each county to file a uniform certificate with the State Bureau of Vital Statistics.


Chronological by year, but not by month. Entries were recorded in order of report, not by date of birth.
