For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. In 1998, a few of the entries were published on 7 CDs by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the "North America Vital Records Index." This index is an index of the births, marriages, and deaths throughout Kentucky. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.
 
 
 
=== Why This Collection Was Created  ===
 
 
 
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing to accomplish its program of identifying the ancestry of mankind.
 
 
 
=== Collection Reliability  ===
 
 
 
Church records and civil registration were official sources and are some of the most reliable sources of information available on those who were born, married, or died in Kentucky.
 
 
 
== Collection Description  ==
 
 
 
Digital database of information transcribed from original records.
 
 
 
=== Record&nbsp;Content  ===
 
 
 
The key genealogical facts found in birth index entries may include:<br>• Name of the child<br>• Gender<br>• Names of the parents<br>• Birth date<br>• Birthplace<br>• Christening date (if the source is a church record)<br>• Family History Library Microfilm and item numbers for the source materials

== How to Use the Collection  ==
 
 
 
Use this file to help you learn more about your ancestors. The information could help you identify family relationships and lineages as well as direct you to original records of your ancestors, which may contain additional information.
 
 
 
Depending on the time period and place there may not be a surname listed in the original records. When that happened, the indexer often assigned a surname based on the father's surname which may not be correct. So if you are looking for a birth/christening, search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.<br>
