The Utah State Archives is responsible for storing and maintaining birth registers from the 1890s up through 1905 for all Utah counties that existed during that time. This includes the birth register from Kane County. Utah State Archives stores the copies of the birth certificates from Kane County, as well as offers a searchable online index to make finding that one birth certificate easier.

In Utah, 1898 meant that physicians and midwives were required to report and register births they attended with the local county clerk. However, in 1905, the State Bureau of Vital Statistics was created, and birth certificates were filed here instead of the county clerk. Birth certificates in the Kane County register should display the name of the child, gender, race, color, birth date, residence, parents' names and the name of the informant. Copies of these birth certificates are considered public information because they are over 100 years old.
