The law over civil registration in Chile was enacted in July of 1884. The office of a civil registrar, whose responsibility to keep and duplicate the registers of birth, marriage, and death was then created. These registers keep all the fundamental information for these events, which relate to the legal make up of the family. The greatest purposes of the state are to legally organize the family, preserve the identity of individuals, and provide secure citizenship.
+
== What Can These Records Tell Me? ==
 
+
The following information is usually found in these records:
The civil registration is a public service under the supervision of the Justice Department, responsible to superintend the legal constitution of the family. Through civil registration, it is possible to exercise the people’s rights related to civil status, identity, real estate, and other specific acts guarded by the law.

'''To search this collection using the index:'''
 
 
 
Fill in the requested information in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the ancestors in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to find your ancestor.
 
 
 
Be aware there may be inaccuracies such as altered spellings, misinterpretations, and optical character recognition errors if the information was scanned.
 
 
 
'''To browse this collection you will need to follow this series of links:''' <br>⇒ Select the ''"Browse"'' link in the initial search page<br>⇒ Select the ''"Province"''<br>⇒ Select the ''"Municipality"''<br>⇒ Select the ''"Record Type and Years"'' 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.  
+
You can search the index or view the images or both. Before using this collection it is helpful to know:
 +
*Your ancestor's given name and surname
 +
*Identifying information such as residence
 +
*Estimated marriage or birth year
 +
=== Search the Index ===

Civil records are important documents for genealogical research after 1884. One can also find additional information of related ancestors to further their genealogical research.  
+
For more tips about searching on-line collections see the on-line article [[FamilySearch Search Tips and Tricks]].
  
In order to find an entry in these records, it is necessary to know the name of an ancestor, a date of an event (birth, marriage or death), and a place where the ancestor lived.

Indexes are available on some of these groups of images. If indexes are available, check these for the name first. Indexes are usually located at the beginning of a group of images or at the end. Find your ancestors name and look for the locator information next to the name (such as page, entry, or certificate number. Frequently, these indexes are arranged by the given name of the individual and sometimes use the Latin form of the name. Those volumes without indexes need to be searched chronologically for the individuals sought. This will help you find the record you are looking for in the collection.
+
===For Help Reading These Records===
 +
For help reading these Spanish records, see the following wiki articles:
  
When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information about other people listed in the record. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors.

*Use the birth date and place to find the family in census records.
+
=== How Do I Analyze The Results? ===
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate civil and land records.
+
Compare each result from your search with what you know to determine if there is a match. This may require viewing multiple records or images.<br><br>
*The father’s occupation can lead you to other types of records such as employment or military records.
 
*The parents' origin places can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.  
 
*Marriage date and place may help find their children
 
*Burial place may also help to know of their migration patterns
 
  
It is often helpful to extract the information on all children with the same parents. If the surname is unusual, you may want to compile baptism entries for every person of the same surname and sort them into families based on the names of the parents. Continue to search the records to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives in the same or other generations who were born, married, and died in the same place or nearby.
+
== What Do I Do Next? ==
  
'''Keep in mind:'''
+
=== I Found Who I Was Looking For, What Now? ===
 +
*Use the marriage date and place as the basis for compiling a new family group or for verifying existing information.
 +
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth of each partner to find a couple's birth records and parents' names.
 +
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records [[Chile Census]].
 +
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church records [[Chile Church Records]].
 +
*Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
 +
*Compile the marriage entries for every person who has the same surname as the bride or groom; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
 +
*Use the marital status to identify previous marriages (whether a divorce or death dissolved a marriage).
 +
*Witnesses often were relatives of the parents.
 +
*When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
  
*The information in civil records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.  
+
=== I Can't Find Who I'm Looking For, What Now? ===
*Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after the late 1800s.  
+
*New information is constantly being indexed, microfilmed or updated.  Periodically check back and see if your ancestor’s records have been added.
*There is also some variation in the information given from record to record.
