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:    If you have any questions on using Early American Newspapers please let me know

Don't ask me why but all of a sudden I'm NOT getting the daily question. I'd like to get back on the e-mail list. Thanks, Jack C. Swisher - Member #: 371792
