Births, Burials or Deaths & Marriages

The records listed in this section are those which have been located in Police Station and Courthouse records. The majority of the records are registers of births, burials or deaths and marriages.

Birth registers can contain such information as the name of person born, date of birth, name of child, parents' names and professions, and place of birth. Burial or death registers can contain such information as dates of burial and death, name of person buried, age, place of residence, occupation, cause of death, and where buried. Marriage registers can contain such information as names of people being married, when and where married, ages, condition (bachelor, spinster, widow or widower, divorcee), occupation, place and length of residence, father's name and occupation, mother’s maiden name and any impediment to marriage. Not all registers give such comprehensive information. The records relate to various places as follows:
