An Important Law - Registry of Births and Deaths

The Marietta Register, April 18, 1867

By a recent act of the Ohio Legislature, the Probate Judges of the several counties of this State are required to keep a record of Births and Deaths within their respective counties.

Physicians and professional midwives are required to report to the Probate Judge quarterly, January, April, July and October, date and place of birth, name, sex and color of child, and names and residence of parents.

Physicians, Ministers and Sextons are required to report deaths, giving name, age and residence of deceased.

A fine of ten dollars is imposed for a violation of the act.

Blank reports will be furnished by Probate Judges. Let every person see to it that this record is complete, thereby saving much trouble in the future.
