Birth Information Substitutes[edit | edit source]

Use these substitute records to locate birth information about your ancestor:
Cemetery Records Tombstone inscriptions and records created when a deceased individual was interred in a cemetery.
Church Records Includes death and burial records. In order to access these records, researchers need to know the church their ancestor attended.
Newspapers Contain obituaries. Before the 21st century, obituaries were mostly restricted to leading members of a community or for those who died in an unusual manner. While the majority of the population did not have their own obituaries, such records often give the individual's death date.
