  • Birth Registration Certificates Index 1842 - 1928
  • Death Registration Certificates Index 1842 - 1972 (Certificate transcriptions to 1967*
  • Marriage Registration Certificates Index 1842 - 1937

Before requesting a birth, death or marriage certificate, check our What is in a Certificate When? document. This lists all of the the fields that may be available in the certificate that you request.

Our index records contain abbreviations that are defined on our site at Abbreviations Explained.

* Please note, we do not have original death certificates from 1968 to 1972, only index records, therefore we cannot transcribe death certificates 1968 to 1972. You can order Newspaper Death Notices for this period, send your request via our Research Request form and we will forward an invoice for payment. Once payment has been processed our research service will search for, then send, the required notice from the paper via email.
