New South Wales Civil Registration

Civil registration began in New South Wales with the commencement of the 1855 Act for Registering Birth, Deaths and Marriages on 1 March 1856.

Until 1st January 1976, the registration of births, deaths and marriages was a duty and function of the Registrar General when they were transferred to the Principal Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages.

Online indexes are available for births (1788-1907), deaths (1788-1977), and marriages (1788-1957) at the New South Wales Government site at www.bdm.nsw.gov.au.
