Original BDM Registers

Page history last edited by Robyn Lockwood 7 years, 9 months ago

South Australia BDM District Registers

 

Selected District Registers are now in the custody of libraries in the areas where they were generated.  They are accessible to the public for research purposes, subject to conditions including a ban on photocopying of the entries.

 

Due to privacy considerations only the following district registers have been sent to the libraries:

•              Birth registrations from commencement of the particular districts records to 1922

•              Death registrations from commencement of the particular districts records to 1972

•              Marriage registrations from commencement of the particular districts records to 1937

 

Following are a schedule to help locate appropriate district registers and alphabetical list of suburbs and towns with the corresponding district numbers for easy identification.

 

Locations and Viewing Times are current from: October 2012
