== Record Description  ==
  
In 1795 Belgium was annexed by France. Napoleon Bonaparte instituted the civil registration of births, marriages and deaths. Civil registration occurs on a town-by-town basis, and is supplemented with decennial indexes to the registers which generally begin by 1802. Many of the earliest records from this time follow the French Revolutionary calendar established in France in October 1793 which was abolished by Napoleon, January1, 1806.  
+
The collection consists of civil registration of births, marriages and deaths from the Belgian National Archives. The collection also includes marriage proclamations, marriage supplements, and some original indexes. Additional images will be added as they become available.  
  
=== Why This Record Was Created<br> ===
+
The events are recorded in Dutch, Flemish or French and cover the years 1582 to 1912.
  
Civil registration was instituted to record births, marriages, deaths because not everyone was baptized, married or buried in a church. It provided for a more complete registration of vital events for the whole population.

Civil records are the primary source for research after 1796. They are recorded by either the mayor himself or a government clerk within 3 days of the event. They are generally correct as far as the information goes, as the event was registered by those who were eyewitnesses of the event. Barring spelling errors or faulty memory civil records are as accurate as possible.
