Someone asked: Were there birth/death records kept for stillborns and/or
babies who died soon after birth? My great grandparents, Richard LANGER and
Fannie Peterfreund, lost 2-3 babies between 1893-1895. I have found their
other 8 children - including one who only lived for 11 months.
It depends of the region. For instance in Rheinhessen and Pfalz/Palatinate,
Germany, regions on the left border of the Rhine that had belonged to France
from 1892 to 1814, stillborns were registered with a birth- and a deathcertificate >from summer 1798 onwards when civic registration was introduced.
