RECORDS OF BIRTHS, MARRIAGES AND DEATHS: REGISTRAR GENERAL DEPARTMENT

This office which dates back to 1764 possesses a rich reservoir of records of genealogical importance. Its responsibility for births, marriages, deaths, land grants, deeds, conveyances and slaves resulted in the generation of innumerable documents. Although the department has made a large deposit of original and duplicate manuscripts to the Archives it continues to hold a vast amount of original and microfilmed records. The government's birth, marriage and death records span the years 1851 - 1979. Church Records from various denominations have also been deposited by the Registrar and these cover the period 1802 - 1976. The government records have been microfilmed but not those from the Churches. The original documents can only be seen at the discretion of the Research Room Supervisor.
