These are records that were created and maintained in the Carbon County Clerk's office prior to the advent of birth and death certificates from the State of Utah. Records may include birth registers, birth reports, death registers, and death reports.

Birth Reports, 1898-1904 Series 29770

This series contains various reports of births submitted to the county clerk. An 1898 law enacted by the State Legislature required physicians and midwives to record each birth at which they assisted professionally. They reported quarterly to the county clerk or in the case of incorporated cities, to the local board of health, which would in turn report to the county clerk. In their absence, parents were required to make a report. (Revised Statutes of Utah 1898, Title 57, p. 474-475)
