How to use these records

Please note that the dates in this index are publication dates of the newspaper, NOT the date of birth. This index was extracted from a microfilm copy of the Panama City Pilot newspaper. Newspapers from this era usually provide very little detail about births in their announcements. Even so, it is alway good practice to examine original sources if possible. The microfilms are availble in the Bay County Public Library.

If you are unable to come to the Library to obtain a copy of the announcement, you may contact the Bay County Public Library to request a copy. You must provide the surname of the child and the date, page, and column of the newspaper. You may call the Bay County Public Library at 850-522-2130 or email for assistance.
