Re: Death notations on Lemberg birth records #galicia

Mark Halpern

Birth records in many jurisdictions, including Galicia and the Austrian
Empire before WW1, used birth records to record subsequent civil events
for that person including his/her parents' marriage, his/her marriage,
and his/her death.

The fact that these subsequent events are *not* found in most birth
records leads to the question of why not? Was it the laziness of the
registrar? Was the recording of subsequent events on a Galician birth
record not required?

I noticed when doing the input of births in Lviv back in 1854 some
deaths were recorded on the birth record. Most are void of this
notation. Some have dates well into the years after their births,

Why would this be done?
