REGISTRATION OF UNREGISTERED BIRTHS.

An Act has been passed by the General Assembly which permits, under certain conditions, of the registration by the RegistrarGeneral of the birth of any child bom in the colony before July 29, 1888, if such birth has not been previously registered. As the operation of the Act extends only till July 29, 1890, any person who may be desirous of taking advantage thereof should apply to the Registrar-General in time for the registration to be effected before that date is reached, .... This Act will prove of inestimable benefit to many people, who from various causes—such as residing up-country at a long distance from a registry office, for instance—have in years gone by been unable to register the births of their children. It need scarcely be pointed out that in connection with many matters a copy of a certificate of birth is a sine qua non. It is a requisite in life insurance, in dealing with legacies, in candidature for scholarship under our educational system, in entering the service of such companies as the Union Steamship Company, and in many other matters. Applications can be made, within the time mentioned, to any registrar, and not necessarily to the Registrar-General.
