What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]

This article describes records held by FamilySearch, International. For information on a specific record collection or record publication please refer to the FamilySearch Catalog or the FamilySearch Historical Record Collection.

Civil registration records are created by the local court and civil registrars to record births, marriages, and deaths. During World War II some areas experienced records loss. Records are also in jeopardy owing to the climate and sometimes inadequate storage conditions. It has been estimated that fewer than 40 percent of the population under five years of age has a birth certificate that was issued at birth. Many birth certificates have been created by legal decree as part of some other legal action.
