Singapore Research Tips[edit | edit source]
Private Records and Artifacts[edit | edit source]
Gathering together and collecting family artifacts and records is helpful in piecing together information that is already known. This can assist in giving clues to family and where research should begin.
Official Records and Sources[edit | edit source]
Official records for Singapore include civil registrations for birth, marriage, and death. These records are helpful in finding out the exact dates and locations for events.
