Birth register completed by Beatrice Borders, an African American state-certified midwife who established the Georgia B. Williams Nursing Home in Camilla, Georgia, a professional birthing center that served African American women during segregation in the twentieth century. This register accounts for 26 deliveries that took place in 1957. It also lists the "Ga. B. Williams Nursing Home" street address at 176 Dyer Street, Camilla, Georgia.These records were recorded in mid-century composition notebooks. Depending on the volume, some entries include the mother's name, the date she entered the facility, the time of the birth, the baby's weight, the baby's gender, and whether there were any complications such as stillbirths. Some entries include additional genealogical information such as occupation, age, and address, birthplace, number of children in the family, and the name of the father.
