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.  
+
The information in each record varies by year.  
  
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.

== How to Use the Record  ==
+
== How Do I Search the Collection? ==
 
 
'''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.  
+
Some record sets have indexes; these indexes were created at the end of the year. Copy errors could have been made in the index, so you want to find the actual record to verify the information is correct. Using the index is a helpful way to find the actual record.  
  
'''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.  
+
For death records, the information in records is usually reliable, but depends upon the knowledge of the informant.  
  
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.  
+
Regarding marriage and death records, name changes, shortened names, or nicknames may have been used by your ancestors, so pay attention to other relationships (parents, spouse, siblings, children, etc.) that can confirm whether you have the right person/record.  
  
Civil records are important documents for genealogical research after 1884. One can also find additional information of related ancestors to further their genealogical research.  
+
'''Search by Name by visiting the [https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1630787 Collection Page]:'''<br> 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.  
  
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.  
+
'''View  images in this collection by visiting the [https://familysearch.org/search/image/index#uri=https://familysearch.org/recapi/sord/collection/1630787/waypoints Browse Page]:'''
 +
<br> ⇒ Select the ''"Province"''<br> ⇒ Select the ''"Municipality"''<br> ⇒ Select the ''"Record Type and Years"'' which takes you to the images.  
  
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.  
+
Look at the images and compare the information with what you already know about your ancestor to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to look at several images and compare the information about the individuals listed in those images to your ancestors to make this determination.  
  
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.  
+
'''When searching:'''<br> 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. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as your ancestor and that your ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times.

'''For Help Reading These Records'''<br>
 +
These records are in Spanish. For help reading the records, see the following wiki articles:
  
*Use the birth date and place to find the family in census records.
+
*[[Spanish Genealogical Word List]]
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate civil and land records.  
+
*[https://script.byu.edu/Pages/Spanish/en/welcome.aspx Script tutorial for Spanish]
*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.  
+
*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.
 +
*The name of a marriage officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the municipality. However, ministers may have reported marriages performed in other municipalities.
 +
*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.
  
'''Keep in mind:'''
+
=== I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now? ===
  
*The information in civil records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.
+
When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.  
*Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after the late 1800s.
 
*There is also some variation in the information given from record to record.

How Do I Search the Collection?

Some record sets have indexes; these indexes were created at the end of the year. Copy errors could have been made in the index, so you want to find the actual record to verify the information is correct. Using the index is a helpful way to find the actual record.

For death records, the information in records is usually reliable, but depends upon the knowledge of the informant.

Regarding marriage and death records, name changes, shortened names, or nicknames may have been used by your ancestors, so pay attention to other relationships (parents, spouse, siblings, children, etc.) that can confirm whether you have the right person/record.

Search by Name by visiting the Collection Page:
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.

View images in this collection by visiting the Browse Page:
⇒ Select the "Province"
⇒ Select the "Municipality"
⇒ Select the "Record Type and Years" which takes you to the images.

Look at the images and compare the information with what you already know about your ancestor to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to look at several images and compare the information about the individuals listed in those images to your ancestors to make this determination.

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. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as your ancestor and that your ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times.

What Do I Do Next?

For Help Reading These Records
These records are in Spanish. For help reading the records, see the following wiki articles:

  • 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.
  • The name of a marriage officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the municipality. However, ministers may have reported marriages performed in other municipalities.
  • 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.

I Found Who I was Looking for, What Now?

When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.

Continue to search the marriage records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the bride and groom who may have married in the same county or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family or even the second marriage of a parent. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.

Continue to search the indexes and records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have lived in the same area or a nearby area.

I Can't Find Who I'm Looking for, What Now?

A boundary change could have occurred and the record of your ancestor is now in a neighboring state or region, or your ancestor immigrated to another country. Search the records of nearby areas or immigration/emigration records Chile Emigration and Immigration. Watch this free video (in English) about finding immigrants from Chile to the United States: U.S. Hispanic Immigrants: Finding their Place of Origin.

Church records are also a good substitute when birth, marriage, and death records can’t be found or are unavailable.
