Kentucky Vital Statistics – Births 1911-1915

A law enacted by the Kentucky General Assembly in 1910 required the registration of all births and deaths in the state.  Record keeping began in 1911.  This law provides genealogists a wealth of information – especially from the first part of the twentieth century.  Information from birth certificates included name of child, date of birth, county of birth, mother’s maiden name and age, father’s name and age, address.  The information contained has changed throughout the years.  On my birth certificate it lists the occupation and business of my father.  On my children’s birth certificates our social security numbers are listed!  Today many libraries have vital statistic records – either in book form (like our Mercer County Public Library) or possibly on film.  There is less information contained here, but enough to make it worth your while – name of child, county of birth, date of birth, volume and certificate number (if you wish to view the original certificate – either on microfilm or by requesting a copy from Vital Statistics), and mother’s maiden name.  Don’t overlook this valuable resource!  The following are Linton births from 1911-1915.
