Registers of Vital Statistics collection, 1753-1893, Newfoundland

Microfilm of original records in possession of the Provincial Archives of Newfoundland, St. John's.

Civil registration started in Newfoundland and Labrador in 1891-1892. In the 1930's and 1940's, the Newfoundland Department of Public Health and Welfare, in an effort to preserve the vital records kept by the churches before civil registration began, requested that churches transcribe their pre-1891 baptisms and marriages. The Registers of Vital Statistics collection contains the records of those churches which responded to the request. A few churches also included burials. Beginning dates vary with each record. Some churches ended their transcriptions with the 1891 records while others transcribed to 1892 or 1893.
