Miscellaneous delayed birth registrations for Newfoundland, 1840-1915 (boxes 1-34)
(Associated to the LDS Family History Center Reel numbers)

   Microfilm of original records in possession of the Provincial Archives of Newfoundland, St. John's. This set of records is listed by the Archives as "All Newfoundland births," however, this set is not all Newfoundland births but "mainly the records of persons who could not locate a record of their own baptism either at the parish level or at the Vital Statistics Division (civil registration) and needed documentation to obtain an official certificate."--Archives

The dates listed are birth dates not registration dates. Registration of vital records began in 1891-1892 in Newfoundland.

"These records contain--1) sworn affadavits of persons attesting to the age of relatives, friends, or acquaintances; 2) delayed registrations of births (if a birth was not registered within one year from the date of the birth, an application had to be completed and supported by written evidence of birth); 3) photocopies of actual baptism/birth certificates; 4) extracts, by clergy, from parish registers of baptisms; [and] 5) lists which include more than one family member (sometimes copied from a family Bible)."
