Birth certificates were not required in South Dakota until 1905. The four births for Ole's family on SD Births were probably recorded when they applied for Social Security benefits. Perhaps the children of Thomas were able to provide baptismal records or other proof of birth, since they were reportedly born in South Dakota but are not listed among SD Births.
