13. When Birth Times were recorded

The following locations began recording the time of birth at these starting dates:

Austria 1939, January 1
Belgium 1793
France 1792, September 22, "Etat civil"
Denmark 1862
Germany 1792, January 1 (Frankfurt 1851, Preussen 1874)
Italy 1866, January 1 (Kingdom Naples and Sicily 1820)
Netherlands 1793 (s` Gravenhage - The Hague)
Scotland 1855
Switzerland 1876, January 1
(Geneva October 22, 1798; Lausanne, July 1, 1821;
Neuchatel March1, 1854 )

Great Britain and her colonies have no record of the time of birth on the registration except in the case of twins. Because of the Law of Succession, it is necessary to see which twin is born first as this one is the legal heir. Up to present time, we still have no recorded time of birth in Ireland, Wales, Australia, Canada or British India.
