This was the case in Maryland, originally a Catholic colony that converted to Anglican/Episcopal after the "Glorious Revolution" in England. The government kept vital records for a few years, then passed a law requiring the Episcopal church to keep these records. For nearly a century and a half, until after the American Revolution, these are the only vital statistics available.
