Births 1926-1934

NOTE! Registration of birth was not required until about 1903, and often births were not registered before or after that date.  Another issue is that frequently registration of records was delayed or records were amended, but both records were kept.  If no parents are shown, it is probably because of a delayed registration for purpose of proof of birth date, and was probably filed after 1940.  Keep in mind that the birth records were handwritten and hard to read, when indexed. Sometimes the index record cut off the names in unusual places, such as   "Elizabe"   These spellings were kept because sometimes parents created various ending such as Elizabell. Sometimes there are multiple variations of the same name.  It was not our purpose to correct  or  edit  information provided other than our own mistakes, but we sometimes added a "See also..." which was not in the index.   We apologize for our own errors, but are proud of the material that we are presenting for free public access.

Tip:  Look  throughout sections of common names, such as 'Brown', for those listed as "NOT NAMED."

If you can provide us with similar records , please contact  Jane Keppler.   Thank you.
