South Australia Birth, Marriage, and Death Records


The site includes separate pages and instructions for births, marriages, deaths, and commemorative certificates.

Online Research Options for South Australia vital records are limited and you can go through the State Records of South Australia (SA Archives) or use a free, searchable index at Genealogy SA.

“State Records holds the following indices to BDM records:

  • South Australian Births 1842 – 1928

  • South Australian Deaths 1842 – 1972

  • South Australian Marriages 1842 – 1937

These indices are also often available at the State Library and larger local libraries.

All certified copies of certificates must be obtained from the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages: Transcriptions of the data on a certificate can be provided by the South Australian Genealogy and Heraldry Society:”
