Index to Delayed Birth Records Issued in Hendricks County (1941-1979)
An index to a book of delayed birth records that were issued in Hendricks County from 5 July 1941 to 31 July 1979. Those people who did not have a birth certificate and who needed to have an official record of their date and place of birth (for example, to apply for Social Security, or to get a marriage license) could petition the Hendricks County circuit court. The applicant did not have to have been born in Hendricks County--they just needed to be a resident of Hendricks County at the time of their application. Women's applications may be under their married name. This index contains the applicant's name, their date of birth, the page number, and a link to the abstract of the delayed birth record that was issued.
