Singapore Church RecordsEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Church records are an excellent source for accurate information on names and dates and on places of births, marriages, and deaths. Many people who lived in Singapore have information recorded about them in a church record.
Singapore is a multi-religious country. According to Statistics Singapore, around 51 percent of resident Singaporeans (i.e., not including significant numbers of visitors and migrant workers) practice Buddhism and Taoism. About 15 percent, mostly Chinese and Indians, practice Christianity - a broad classification including Catholicism, Protestantism and other denominations. Muslims constitute 14 percent, of whom Malays account for the majority with a substantial number of Indian Muslims. Smaller minorities practice Sikhism, Hinduism and others, according to the 2000 census. About 15 percent of the population declared no specific religious affiliation.
