Substitute Records

Additional Records with Birth Information

Substitute records may contain information about more than one event and are used when records for an event are not available. Records that are used to substitute for birth events may not have been created at the time of the birth . The accuracy of the record is contingent upon when the information was recorded. Search for information in multiple substitute records to confirm the accuracy of these records.

Tips for finding births

Successfully finding birth records in online databases depends on a few key points. Try the following search suggestions:

  • Your ancestor’s name and surname may have had many different spelling variations.
  • If you are not finding what you’re looking for, try using wildcard characters. That is, use an asterisk * to replace one or more characters.
  • Try searching surrounding areas. Your ancestors may have been born in another town than where they lived later in life.
  • Be flexible with year searches. Give a year range of about 2-3 years on either side of the believed year of the event.
