During the 1910s and 1920s, these postcards were used by the Virginia Bureau of Vital Statistics to inform parents that their child's birth had been registered and to explain the importance of birth registration to their child's future.

This card is for the unnamed-at-birth white male child of Joseph Wine and Ellen Lee Wine, born at Flat Rock, Shenandoah County, Virginia on June 27, 1914. It's postmarked in late September, reflecting the relatively slow operation of the state's registration system.
