What historical records are available

The Tasmanian Registry does not have an online search facility to access births, deaths and marriages.  We understand that access to historical information is important and are working to convert our paper records into an electronic format.

The Tasmanian Federation Index

The Tasmanian Federation Index is an index of all birth records for the period 1900-1919, and death and marriage records for the period 1900-1930.

A copy of the Tasmania Federation Index is available for use by visiting Libraries Tasmania (external link).  The CD-ROM is also available for viewing at major Reference Libraries throughout Australia.

The Tasmanian Pioneers Index

The Tasmanian Pioneers Index is an index of all birth, death and marriage records for the period 1803 - 1899.

A copy of the Tasmanian Pioneers Index is available for use by visiting Libraries Tasmania (external link).  The CD-ROM is also available for viewing at major Reference Libraries throughout Australia.

War records

During both World Wars, legislative provision was made for the registration, upon request, of the death of persons dying outside of the State of Tasmania whilst engaged on war service.

The deaths of approximately 4000 service personnel were registered under this provision.
