“Compulsory registration of births, deaths and marriages started in Western Australia in September 1841. Previously the churches assumed responsibility for recording details of baptisms, burials and marriages. The J S Battye Library in Perth, which is part of the State Library of Western Australia, has certain church records prior to 1841.”


“The registry has more than 3.1m records relating to people who were born, married or died in Western Australia. A similar registration system operates in other Australian states and territories, and records relating to your ancestors who may have lived interstate can be traced by inquiring at that state’s registry.”
