Abstract:
The collection consists of birth and death records for the City of Cincinnati. The records consist of births and deaths that took place within the city limits at the time of the event. Each "birth record" contains the name of the individual along with birth date, race, gender, name and birthplace of father and mother, occupation of father, name of doctor or midwife, and hospital. For each "death record" the following information is available: name, age, date and cause of death, address, occupation, race, gender, attending physician, funeral home, and place of burial. With a few exceptions, the birth records begin in 1874 and the death records begin in 1865. The majority of the records end in 1908 but there are some records as late as 1912.
