  • church records of births, such as baptisms and christenings

  • other religious records of births

  • civil records of births

  • birth certificates

  • birth affidavits

  • delayed registrations

  • birth records from hospitals

  • adoption records

  • and any significant collection that appears to have been created around the time of a birth event. For example, if there’s a curated collection of birth notices in newspapers, it will be placed in both the Birth category and the Newspaper category.


Below is an image of a Birth Affidavit, one type of birth record included in this category.
