*[http://www.justizia.net/certificado-defuncion Death Records]
**This site will allow you to order a birth, marriage, or death certificate from any municipality in the Basque Country (provinces of Alava, Guipuzcoa, and Vizcaya) for free.<br>
===Local Civil Registration Office===
The records are still housed in each municipality in their local municpal archives, ''Juzgado de la Paz'' or ''Oficina del Registro Civil ''should be contacted if a certificate copy request to the Ministerio de Justicia fails.
 
Larger cities may have multiple civil registration districts, and smaller towns may have their own civil registration office, or belong to an office of a nearby town. To determine the political jurisdiction for the town where your ancestors came from please see the [[Spain Gazetteers|'''Spain Gazetteers''']] article.<br>
 
The best way to find out if civil registration records are available in the town you are researching in, and to get the address of the archive is through the Directorio de Archivos in the [http://aer.mcu.es/sgae/index_censo_guia.jsp Censo-guia].
 
===FamilySearch Records===
Some ''municipios'' may have civil registration records beginning as early as 1837. These births, marriages, and deaths are normally found in the municipal archive. Some of them have been microfilmed and/or digitized by FamilySearch.<br>
