RS141A1c INTRODUCTION: Late Registration of Births: County Series, 1869-1901*


The vast majority of the births registered with Vital Statistics (see RS141A5) are organized by year and then alphabetically. For this reason, no master index has yet been created for them. Most of the Late Registrations are found in RS141A1b. However, a volume of births was created in 1900-1901 to record births which which occurred as far back at 1869.

There are 2294 births which now have the archival designation RS141A1c and are on microfilms F18795 & F18796. They are arranged by county, then chronologically, then alphabetically. This index gives the gender of the child, the date of birth, name of father, name of mother, place of birth, county of birth, archival file code, and the microfilm number where the registration may be viewed.

The following shows more detail on these births:

1 Albert County 1900-1901 F18795
2 Carleton County 1899-1901 F18795

4 Gloucester County 1892-1901 F18795
5 Kings County 1898-1901 F18795
