Title in the Language of the Record

Registro Civil de Amazonas, Peru

Record Description

This Collection will include records from 1939 to 1995.

Copies of original civil registration records of births, marriages, and deaths from the department of Amazonas in Peru. Additional images will be published as they become available.

Before the government instituted civil registration in Peru, the Catholic Church was the only institution tracking the births, marriages, and deaths of the population. In 1852, during the Republican Era, the government instituted civil registration. This was first done by political authorities, such as prefecture, subprefecture, and state. In 1856, this responsibility was given to municipalities. Currently, civil registration is in the hands of RENIEC, which delegates the registration process to municipal registrars. Civil registration in Peru started on June 21, 1852.

⇒ Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page
⇒ Select the "Provincia" category
⇒ Select the "Distrito o municipalidad" category
⇒ Select the "Tipo de registro y años" category which takes you to the images.

Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.

For genealogical research, the birth, marriage, and death records contain important information for at least two and sometimes three generations of ancestors in one document.
