PA Births: Berks County, 1710-1780 Author: John T. Humphrey
This book is a comprehensive index to the extant birth records for children born in Berks County before 1780. Each entry lists family name, the name of the infant, the date of birth or baptism, the names of both parents and the source where the information was found. If the mother’s maiden surname is given in the church record that information is also included. The county was predominately German, as evidenced by the 30 Lutheran and Reformed church registers used. Denominations covered in the Berks County volumes include: Quaker, Catholic, Anglican or Protestant Episcopal, Moravian, German Reformed and Lutheran. Combined the forty-two church meeting and pastoral records list more than 12,000 births.
