Birth Certs. before 1837.


Valued Member
I found out today from another website that there were some births registered before the civil registration of 1837. The GRO has Army Records, some of which go back to 1761. If the baby's father was a soldier, the birth was registered. I do not know if this practice applied to all ranks but thought that someone may find this information useful. :)
