What is in the Collection?

This collection includes indexes to births and deaths of British nationals in the Federal District of Mexico. The birth indexes date from 1854-1874 and the death indexes date from 1827-1926.

If a British national was born or died while in Mexico, a relative could register the event with the British embassy or a consulate. This information was then recorded in British records.

You will be able to browse through images in this collection when it is published.

You may need to compare the information about more than one person to find your ancestor.

When searching:
As you are searching it is helpful to know such information as your ancestor’s given name and surname, some identifying information such as residence, age, and family relationships.
