Actually, there were laws written prior to 1860 about keeping public records
for births marriages and deaths, but they were mainly ignored. Mainly, but
not completely. There are some scattered records but I don't remember if I
found them at the City Archives or the HSP.
Sorry, but you can call both places and ask.
