New York City’s Vital Records: The City Registry Act of 1853
In 1853, an act requiring a registry of births, marriages and deaths was passed by the New York State Legislature. It applied only to New York City; other areas, it was deemed, could not afford the higher pay and penalties. The New York Times advised doctors and clergymen and others assisting with either marriages or births to “study up their duties” and avoid penalties.

"Lost" Texas Death Certificates
The State of Texas required its county offices to begin registering deaths in 1903, filing the record at the county courthouse and submitting a duplicate to the State. Most genealogists are unaware that the Department of Health also has a small number of death certificates that predate the 1903 registration.
