Virginia Birth Records

Virginia Birth records provide a record of some of the most important events in our lives .

Virginia Birth records represent one of the key primary sources for family information, typically being issued within days of a birth and containing the parents' names at a minimum. Many times they contain additional parental details including places of birth, ages, and number of children. Prior to children being born in hospitals, home addresses were noted which is an important fact to understanding where they lived.

Virginia Birth records usually show the name of the child, gender, date and place born, parents' names, and sometimes other data, such as parents' birthplaces .

Official birth certificates were not issued by most states until 1910 or later
