Birth & Baptism

Birth certificates represent one of the key primary sources for family information, typically being issued within days of a birth and containing the parents' names at a minimum. Many times they contain additional parental details including places of birth, ages, number of children and religious affiliation for baptism and christening records.

Prior to children being born in hospitals, home addresses were noted which is important for understanding where they lived. Records in this category can include indexes that can help you request copies from vital records keepers, and in some cases the images of actual records.
