AUSTRALIAN VITAL STATISTICS
Official records of births, marriages and deaths are kept by the various Australian States, but access is variable and limited by privacy laws. Fortunately, information is also available elsewhere. Data have been collected from the following sources:
- Civil registration indexes of births, marriages, divorces and deaths
- Birth, marriage and death announcements in newspapers
- Cemetery records, including headstones
These data provide information for all six Australian States: New South Wales (NSW), Queensland (QLD), South Australia (SA), Tasmania (TAS), Victoria (VIC) and Western Australia (WA).
