Brasil, São Paulo, Registros Hospitais, 1965-2000

Record Description[edit | edit source]

This collection includes records for the years 1965 to 2000.

Included in this collection are records of deaths and live births from various hospitals in the city of São Paulo. Although the birth records do not include the child’s given name, they do include names of parents and date and place of birth. Similarly, some death records do not give the name of the deceased. These types of records were not official civil registration of deaths and births; however, they were often used to facilitate that process. This collection was created from the Fundo SEADE at Arquivo Público do Estado de São Paulo (Public Archives of the State of São Paulo).

You will be able to browse through images in this collection when it is published.

Using the Information[edit | edit source]

When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Download a copy of the record, or extract the genealogical information needed. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details. Add this new information to your records of each family. The information may also lead you to other records about your ancestors. The following examples show ways you can use the information:

Birth Records

  • Use the soldier's age and location of the military unit to find his family in census, church, and land records
  • Use the county code and the certificate number to obtain a copy of the original death certificate from the county

Death Records

  • Use estimated age at death to calculate birth year

Unable to Find Your Ancestor?[edit | edit source]

Examples of what to put in this section:

  • Check for variant spellings of the names
  • Look for an index. There are often indexes at the beginning of each volume; local genealogical and historical societies often have indexes to local records
  • Search the records of nearby localities (or military unties, counties, parishes, etc.).
  • Try alternative search methods such as only filling in the surname search box (or the given name search box) on the landing page leaving the other box empty and then click on search. This should return a list of everyone with that particular name. You can then browse the list for individuals that may be your ancestor.
