Order Certificates birth, marriage and death
When you start your family history research it is crucial that you obtain accurate primary source material. This will allow you to verify and document your family tree.
Certificates of birth, marriage and death contain useful information that will allow you to trace back your line.
Certificates are obtained in a number of ways, depending on the country and which "life event" took place.
Material covering the years 1698-1968 for India and related countries i.e. Aden, Burma, China (Macao and Whampoa), Kuwait, Pakistan, St Helena, Straits Settlements (Penang, Singapore, Malacca) and Sumatra see Oriental and India Office Collections.
If you are trying to find documentation of a birth,
marriage or death occurring earlier than the above dates,
you will need to find out about records kept by churches,
chapels or synagogues - see the topic Religious
