This wiki article describes a collection that is scheduled to become available for free online at FamilySearch Record Search.

Contents

Collection Time Period

This index covers events from 1858 through 1908.

Record History

For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. This index is an index of the births and deaths throughout Angola. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.

Why This Record Was Created

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing of this collection to help individuals find information about their ancestors.

Record Reliability

Church records and civil registration were official records and are some of the most reliable sources of information available for those who were born or died in Angola.

Record Description

The index is an electronic database of information transcribed from original records.

Record Content

The key genealogical facts found in birth or christening index entries may include:

  • Name of the child
  • Gender
  • Names of the parents
  • Birth date
  • Birthplace
  • Christening date (if the source is a church record)
  • Family History Library Microfilm and item numbers for the source materials

The key genealogical facts found in death or burial index entries may include:

  • Name of the deceased
  • Gender
  • Names of the parents
  • Name of the spouse (if married)
  • Death or burial date
  • Death or burial place
  • Family History Library Microfilm and item numbers for the source materials

How to Use the Record

Use this index to help you learn more about your ancestors. The information could help you identify family relationships and lineages as well as direct you to original records of your ancestors, which may contain additional information.

In birth or christening records, if a surname is not listed for the child, the indexer often assigns the father’s surname to the child. This surname may not be correct. So if you are looking for a birth or christening, search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.
