Name index records are online as a part of our Pre-1907 Vital Records Collection, which is accessible from any computer. The index provides the information necessary to locate a specific microfilm reel containing the ancestor's full birth record. The full record will include details not found in the index. Search for your ancestor by name or year of the event on the Research Your Family History page.


The Society has approximately 1 million state-level birth records and 27,000 delayed birth records through September 30, 1907. They are a part of our Pre-1907 Vital Record Collection. Birth Records from Our Pre-1907 Vital Records Collection.


Wisconsin law required counties to register birth events with state officials starting in 1852, but the law was not strictly enforced until roughly 1880. Most records date from 1880 or later. It is possible that some records only exist at the county level and are not in our state-level collection. We do not have birth records after September 30, 1907.
