Births, deaths, and marriages

When to use the District Registers

The following is a summary of duplicate registers of births, deaths and marriages. The District Registrars kept these registers of the births and deaths occurring in their districts. They regularly sent returns to be added to the Central Registry in Hobart. Only some district registers found their way into the Tasmanian Archives, as listed below. All of these records are now digitised.

These registers only include marriages performed in a marriage registry.

These registers are not comprehensive. They will only be useful if you wish to cross-reference details of a registration that occurred within the date-ranges given below.

Births, deaths and marriages from the Central Registry can be found by searching the Tasmanian Names Index.
