Contents

Title in the Language of the Record

Registros de Sepultamentos dos Cemitérios no Municipio de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brasil.

Collection Time Period

This collection of burial records from the municipality of São Paulo covers the years 1870 to 1984.

Record Description

This collection of burial records covers some of the cemeteries in the municipality of São Paulo, such as: Araçá, Consolação, Freguesía do Ó, Lajeado, Lapa, Penha, Santana, São Paulo, Vila Mariana, and the villas of Brás, São Miguel, and Colônia Alemã. All the burial records are written in narrative style and include the burial location in the cemetery. There are three to six burial records per page. These registers have been preserved well.

Record Content

The key genealogical facts found in most of the cemetery burial records:

  • Location within the cemetery where the deceased was buried
  • Date of burial
  • Name of deceased
  • Parents’ names
  • Place of origin
  • Age at time of death
  • Date of death
  • Place of death
  • Cause of death
  • Witness name

How to Use the Record

These records may be useful to find ancestors if other vital records have not been found or may not exist anymore. These records may also help when the gravestones are illegible or have been destroyed. These burial records may be the only record of infant deaths. Gravestones may also have been engraved with the date of birth, date of marriage, military service, occupation, religion, place of residence at time of death, and place of origin. To find the burial record of an ancestor, you need to have at least the death date of the ancestor. A person can discover where an ancestor was buried by checking in the church death/burial records or the civil registry of the locality the ancestor lived. Sometimes the burial place of an ancestor may have been transferred to another cemetery or may have been cremated.

Record History

In earlier years, the burial was performed by the Catholic Church as a charitable work and they kept the records in their parish registers. Later private cemeteries began to be created; therefore the Provincial Legislation of São Paulo approved the first statutes for cemeteries in May of 1856. With this regulation in effect the first municipal cemetery was opened in1858 with the name of Cemitério da Consolação. Then an authorized cemetery administration officer was put in charge of recording in a book each burial performed in the cemetery, including personal information of the deceased person and the location of the grave.

Why the Record Was Created

It was necessary for cemetery administrators to keep a registration of all the burials including vital information of the deceased and the gravestone place in the cemetery.
