The year the birth was registered.
The registration number within the year.
Limit the number of entries per page to return. The default is 20.
Limit the response to births registered in the specified county.
Limit the response to births registered in the specified municipality within a county. A municipality may be a city, town, or township.
Limit the response to individuals whose given names match the pattern in this field. This search is done as a case-insensitive pattern match, not a simple comparison.

Specifying simple text, comprising letters and spaces, matches against any names containing that text. "John" or "john" or "JOHN" will match "Johnathan" and "William John" as well as the simple "John".

The text may be a regular expression. There are too many options to enumerate here, but a few examples include:

This field is used to specify text to look for in the surname of the child. If the value contains only letters and spaces then only surnames that match exactly (except for case) are found. Otherwise this uses regular expression pattern matching. For example to match surnames starting with "McL..." and ending with "...n", such as "McLean", "McLain", "McLennan", or "McLellan" you could specify "^McL.*n$".

The meaning of this field changes if the Soundex option is selected.

The Soundex code has been used for decades to attempt to match names that sound similar. For example it is used by police forces to perform a rough match for the names of drivers. It is a problematic tool, as it is based upon the phonetics of British surnames. If you select Soundex then the search is made for surnames that "sound like" the given surname. For example specifying Soundex together with "McLean" will match all of the surnames in the pattern match example under "Surname", but many other names as well, such "McCallum", "McAllan", "McClain", and "McWilliams".

The Soundex code has been used for decades to attempt to match names that sound similar. For example it is used by police forces to perform a rough match for the names of drivers. It is a problematic tool, as it is based upon the phonetics of British surnames. If you select this option along with a complete surname, not a pattern match, in the Surname field, then the search is made for surnames that "sound like" the given surname. For example specifying Soundex together with "McLean" will match all of the surnames in the pattern match example under "Surname", but many other names as well, such "McCallum", "McAllan", "McClain", and "McWilliams".
Select this option if you only want to look for male or female individuals.
This option is used to search for births based upon the occupation of the Father of the child. This field uses regular expression pattern matching. For example searching for "Labo[u]{0,1}rer" will match any occupation that contains either "Laborer" or "Labourer", including "Farm Labourer" and "R'y Laborer".
This option is used to search for births based upon the occupation of the Mother of the child. This field uses regular expression pattern matching. For example searching for "Labo[u]{0,1}rer" will match any occupation that contains either "Laborer" or "Labourer", including "Farm Labourer" and "R'y Laborer".
This option is used to search for individuals based upon where they were born. This is a pattern match. For example searching for "Canada" will also match "Canada East", "Canada West", "Lower Canada", and "Upper Canada".
This field is used to specify text to look for in date of birth. For example searching for "1910" will find people who were born in 1910. Specifying "Jan" will find people who were born in January. Specifying "23" will find people who were born either on the 23rd of a month, or in 1823 or 1923. In more detail this field uses regular expression pattern matching. For example '[[:<:]]23[[:>:]]' matches dates containing '23' as a word, and so could be used to match individuals born on the 23rd of any month.
