Civil Registration

Civil registration are government issued records of birth, marriage, and death.

These records provide the date of the event, including time of day for births; name of principal and parents; occupation and religious preference of parents; name of informant for births and names of witnesses for marriages; place of residence for parents of new born, of the groom and bride for marriages, and of the deceased for deaths; age at death, cause of death, and place of burial in death records.

Generally these records are located in local and national civil registry offices and cover up to 90% of the population in the 20th century.
