& LOCAL HISTORY COLLECTIONS
Births were not recorded in the
State of Ohio before 1867. From 1867-1908 births were noted by the County Probate
Court; however this file is not complete. Morley Library has the Lake County
Probate Court Births/Deaths on microfilm. From December 1908 birth records are maintained
by the County Bureau of Vital Statistics.
Morley Library has an index to birth
notices that appeared in the Painesville Telegraph from 1887-1900.
"Corrected or Omitted
Births" for Lake County, registered from 1941-1954 on microfilm, is also available.
These are usually for persons born in the late 19th century through the early
1950s who did not have a birth certificate.
