- County clerks became responsible for recording births beginning in 1898. In 1905, the State Department of Health assumed responsibility and required the counties to forward copies of the records to them.
|It took a few years after the requirement for everyone (people, doctors, midwives, and officials) to comply, so some early birth registrations were missed.|
