About This Webpage





          Birth records are legal documents that function as an eye witness account of a person’s birth.  Birth records contain a lot of valuable information, including such data as; personal identifying data, information on both parents if available, and the place, date, and manner of birth. Birth records will also contain an infant's position with respect to siblings, race or ethnicity, and gender.  For many people, searching birth records could mean finding the information to fill the missing spaces, finally finish their genealogical research and complete their family tree.

     All of the records and databases listed below are FREE and can be accessed and searched without having to pay for a subscription.  We try not to list any sites that have only a few records for the purpose of getting you to a website that will charge a fee to actually see the record beyond just a name.   The links on this page will take you to a wide variety of birth certificates, christening record, and birth index databases.
