Scope and Content

Prior to 1898, a few cities and towns recorded births independently of county requirements. Beginning in 1898, physicians and midwives were required to keep record of each birth at which they assisted professionally. 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.
