|Albin Vidunas Birth certificate 1906|
"When there is no attending physician or midwife, then the father, householder, etc., should make this return"This tells me there was no attending physician at the birth. There may have been a lay midwife, similar to the ones depicted on the British TV show "Call the Midwife." I can't tell.
Hmmm. Looking closer, one finds the last line, which indicates this record was filed 3/24/1923. This would be a delayed birth certificate, filed when Albin was 17 years old. Too late for WWI; too early for WWII. Perhaps Albin was trying to join the Army and needed a birth certificate?
