Birth Records

The following births were transcribed from photo copies of the birth register from about 1880 to 1909. 

These were microfilmed by Salt Lake City in the mid 70's.

Each entry is across two pages with the following headings:

Date of Return
Name of Child; Sex; No. of child of this mother
Race or Color
Date of Birth; Place of Birth
Nationality of Father; Place of Birth; Age
Nationality of Mother; Place of Birth; Age
Full Name of Mother; Maiden name of Mother; Residence of Mother
Full Name of Father; Occupation
Name & Address of Medical Attendant; Name & Address of Person Making Certificate; Returned By

We have chosen to list the child's 

  • NAME
  • Date of Birth
  • Place of Birth
  • Parents names 

for each birth so they can be indexed.  We have tried to list the maiden name of the mother, when we can read it <grin>.

Date's with * is the date the birth was recorded, there was no date in the date of birth field.

Births 1904-1906

In 1904 legislation was enacted that required certificates of birth to be filed with the State Department of Health and not in the counties. In 1906, the law was reversed and births were once again also recorded in the county. Thanks to the State Historical Society of Iowa for transcribing them. This is the index to those births for Clinton County.
