To streamline the management of its massive collection, the Utah State Archives assigns a number to each birth record. The record will also include the name of the individual originally filing the report.

In the state of Utah, starting in 1898, physicians and midwives were mandated to submit birth records for each birth they attended. If the parents were the only ones in attendance, then the responsibility fell on their shoulders to report their baby's birth. Every quarter, all the births were then submitted to either the local board of health or the county clerk. The process changed n 1905, when Utah created a new law that asked every county to submit to Utah's State Bureau of Vital Statistics uniform birth certificates.

The Utah, Davis County Clerk Birth Registers Index is organized chronically by year, exclusive of the month. During the time period of this collection, all of the entries were officially recorded based upon their date of submittal, rather than the actual date of birth.
