Sample Images

​Characteristics and Description

  • Records were handwritten or typed on preprinted forms.
  • Each image contains just one birth record.
  • Often, there are two records for each child. The first is handwritten and the second typed. Since they are not duplicates and can have different information, each record should be indexed individually. Do not combined the records or mark them as duplicates.
  • Batches contain up to 15 images.

Records Access

  • The completed index and links to digital images will be freely accessible online to the general public when the collection is published.
