Searching for Birth Facts in Idaho Resources

Contributed by November 10, 2017

Sample Birth Certificate

Every day a baby is born to someone, somewhere, and often that birth is recorded by some official and sends that information to the local government who requires records of that birth. Today, family historians often search for date of births, deaths, and marriages to complete their family tree. And oftentimes, those dates aren’t available in some official record.

For early birth dates we must rely upon those information on some gravestone in cemeteries, but often still that doesn’t always come with complete date, such as December 4, 1844. Other ways to find these dates are from other records, death certificate, newspapers, military records, or even in historical works where local, county, state gives biographical information of those who lived there at the time.

Let say your ancestor was born after the 20th century, like in the State of Idaho, it became required to fill out a birth certificate from July 1, 1911 to present days. Of course, anyone can request a copy of the birth or stillbirth certificates, if known. I’ll if information at the end.

Birth Indexes Online:

The following databases have indexed birth records from a certain period. I’ll provide you will the links to those sites, whether paid or free sites. I will provide you with a great source to find some “non-adoption” records if you learn that your ancestor was sent to the children’s home society in Idaho. I learn of this part for someone I helped research his Idahoan roots.

Idaho Birth or Adoption Resources:

You’ll find the titles and links for each database, along with description of that database or resources to obtain more information on purchasing birth certificates or the “non-adoption” ... Click Here to read more.
