== Record Description ==
  
This collection includes the years 1821 through 1962.  
+
This index is an electronic index for the years 1821 to 1962. It is not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records. This index is not complete for any particular place or region. This collection may include information previously published in the International Genealogical Index or Vital Records Index collections.  
  
== Record Description ==
+
=== Coverage Table  ===
  
This index is an electronic database of information. The entries are primarily from the IGI along with some entries derived from compiled and original records such as:
+
A Coverage table for this collection is available in the Wiki article [[Ohio Births and Christenings, Coverage Table (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
* Family Records  
 
* Church Records
 
* Civil Registration
 
  
It may also include indexes generated by the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church.
+
=== Citation for This Collection  ===
  
There may be entries that cite a specific source such as the following:
+
The following citation refers to the original source of the information published in FamilySearch.org Historical Record collections. Sources include the author, custodian, publisher and archive for the original records.
* "Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850: a Family Register for the People" by James Arnold
 
* "Paul Dingwell Genealogical Collection" by Paul Dingwell
 
* A county or state vital record registration
 
  
These entries are in this collection for one of the following reasons:

{{Collection citation | text= "Ohio, Births and Christenings, 1821-1962." Index. <i>FamilySearch</i>. http://FamilySearch.org : accessed 2013. Index based upon data collected by the Genealogical Society of Utah, Salt Lake City.}}
* They were submitted by private individuals to the LDS Church and as such are part of the IGI resulting in their inclusion in this index.
 
* They have been indexed through the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church. If this is the case, the index they are a part of has been included as part of this database.
 
  
The Vital Record Index databases are not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records although some sub-indexes (an index to a set of records within the database) have been found. When we identify a sub-index, we remove it from the database and post it separately on FamilySearch under its appropriate title.

== Coverage Table  ==
 
 
 
This collection is a partial index of records for the localities listed below as of April 2010. The table below shows the number of records by locality. Localities not listed may not have any records in this collection.
 
 
 
Most of these records date from the time period indicated in the columns below; however, there may be records before and after these dates. Record counts where the locality information was incomplete are included below under the country name. Because of this, you may wish to search only by state.
 
 
 
As this is an index of records compiled from various sources, it is strongly recommended that you verify the information in original records. Due to privacy laws not all records may be displayed.

== How to Use the Record  ==
 
 
 
Use this index 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.
 
 
 
In birth or christening records, if a surname is not listed for the child, the indexer often assigns the father’s surname to the child. This surname may not be correct. So if you are looking for a birth or christening, search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.
 
 
 
=== Finding the Original Source for an Entry in This Collection  ===
 
 
 
Each entry in this index has a source listed which includes a batch number. You will need to trace the batch number for the individual entry to learn its source. Please see the following wiki articles for more information on batch numbers:
 
 
 
*[[IGI]]
 
*[[IGI Batch Number Descriptions]]
 
*[[IGI Batch Numbers for the British Isles and North America]]
 
 
 
If an FHL film number is given in the entry for your ancestor, search for it in the [https://www.familysearch.org/#form=catalog&catSearchType=film_number Family History Library Catalog].  
 
 
 
== Record History  ==
 
 
 
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 is an index of some births and christenings throughout Ohio. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.
 
 
 
=== Why This Record Was Created  ===
 
 
 
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored this index to help individuals find information about their ancestors.
 
 
 
=== Record Reliability  ===
 
 
 
Church records and civil registration were official records and are some of the most reliable sources of information available for those who were born, married, or died in Ohio.

When you copy information from a record, you should also list where you found the information. This will help you or others to find the record again. It is also good to keep track of records where you did not find information, including the names of the people you looked for in the records.
