Birth Records

 

  Records of births are less commonly found in collections of church records than baptismal records because most denominations of the Christian religion place greater emphasis on the spiritual, rather than the material, life of its members. But some of the churchesí records do include the actual date of birth. The inclusion or lack thereof was really up to either the pastor or church secretary who was writing the entries.

Check the webpage titled simply, Church Records, for a list of available sources of published and unpublished baptismal, birth, communicant, death and marriage records.
