Collection Time Period

This index covers events from 1585 through 1932.

Record Description

This index is an electronic database of information compiled from a variety of sources including the following:

  • Family Records
  • Church Records
  • Civil Registration

This index is not complete for any particular place or region.

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

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.

Finding the Original Source for an Entry in This Collection

Each entry in this index has a source listed which includes a batch number. You will need to trace the batch number for the individual entry to learn its source. Please see the following wiki articles for more information on batch numbers:

This index is an index of the births or christenings; marriages; and deaths or burials throughout Chile. This is an index to some births and baptisms in parishes throughout Chile.

Why This Record Was Created
