Scope and Content

These records contain birth registers recorded from 1898 to 1905. Entries include the child's name, date of birth, sex, race, color, parents' names, place of residence, informant's name, and assigned number.

Beginning in 1989, physicians and midwives were required to maintain a record of each birth for which they assisted. In their absence, the parents were required to complete the report. Records were submitted quarterly to the county clerk, or in the case of incorporated cities, to the local board of health who would submit the 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 standard certificate with the State Bureau of Vital Statistics.
