About California, Birth Record Index, 1905–1995

This database was acquired from the California Department of Health, and originally entitled California Birth Index. The descriptive information here is adapted from the California Department of Health website. More information about the database may be available there.

These records contain an index of births from California. Each entry includes the following information, when available: name, gender, date and place of birth, and mother’s surname.

A birth record can be one of the most helpful sources of information you can discover, even though these records are often hard to find and incomplete. An ancestor’s birth record from California will usually include the first name, surname, and date of birth (although some records have only the child’s surname and date of birth).  More modern records from California are often more detailed and may include the child’s first and last name, gender, birth date and location, parents’ names, and the attending doctor’s name.
