Question: How common was it for births to be registered in the newspapers in the 18th century?

 

Answer:  From my experience the notices of marriages and deaths were more common in the 18th century.  The occasional birth of a notable from Europe, or extreme multiple births are listed.  As a member of NEHGS you have access to early 18th century newspapers by using our External Databases: http://web1.americanancestors.org/external-databases/    If you have any questions on using Early American Newspapers please let me know onlinegenealogist@nehgs.org
