As I have been to the Warren County Courthouse about a zillion times through the years and made copies for other people I always kept a copy for myself these I've kept and the records that are going online.; plus, from various other sources I've been involved in. Thanks...

Kathy Mills, a very good friend of mine has graciously sat and typed this up for me to put here for your reference use.  We all owe Kathy a great big hand for doing this.  Between my family life, doing research for others and trying to keep up with information she is typing up for both my web sites; I've been keeping some pretty late hours.  Thanks so much Kathy and everyone out there is enjoy...  Email


 If you would like a copy of a birth record you may contact the Warren County Courthouse, with the information obtained in these next few pages.  You will need the book and page number, year,  name of child if given, and the parents names.  Thanks. I thank you much, Kathy; and I know cyberspace  thanks you, too

Foxie's Note: when you see 1899 book 16 pg# 1606, this is an example, it means delayed birth certificate so the year might not be right but it is the year the person received the delayed birth certificate.

Recording of births was not required until 1916.  The following birth records, dating from 1876 through 1915, were voluntary, and are therefore only a partial record of early Warren County births.  You may thank these thoughtful ancestors for thinking to preserve our family records.

All transcribing of these early births from a typed and copied manuscript, was done with utmost care to detail.  However, errors do occur and the typed copy was at times faded and difficult to read.  So researchers wishing to document their family histories should obtain the original recording from the Warren County Courthouse.

*Tip:****Another way to search the pages for your ancestors is to use your own web browser, click on Edit, scroll down to Find on this page, click, type in Surname, then click. I use it all the time.  Makes life a little easier.
