Family history

Registration of births, deaths and marriages commenced in 1839 in Tasmania, the first Australian colony to take over the function previously conducted by the Churches.

The Registry holds and can produce certificates for:

  • church records (burials, baptisms and marriages) from 1803 - 1839
  • birth, death and marriage registrations from 1839 to date

Access to birth records is available to anyone after 100 years.  Access to marriage records is available to anyone after 75 years.  Access to death records is available to anyone after 25 years.  All other applications are subject to the Access Policy.

Please Note:  The Tasmanian Registry does not have an online search facility to access birth, death and marriage records.
