Austria Civil Registration
Back to Austria Page►
Civil Registration (Standesamt-Register) of births and deaths began throughout Austria on 1 January 1939. Civil registration of marriages started on 1 August 1938; however, marriages celebrated between 1 August 1938 and 31 December 1938 were conducted at regional district offices (Bezirkshauptmannschaften).
Civil registration began in Hungary in 1895 and those parts of the modern federal province of Burgenland which were then part of Hungary will have civil registration records.
To obtain a certificate, you need to contact the registry office which registered the event. For Vienna only Municipal Department 35 provides the relevant service. To find an address for a local registry use the Austrian Government Help Portal.
