Civil Registration

Civil Registration began in Colombia in 1865 but wasn't fully adopted everywhere in the country till 1888.  Till 1926, the civil registration records were included as part of the notarial records.  Now the Registraduría Nacional del Estado Civil (the National Registry of Civil Status) maintains the civil registration; the website is http://www.registraduria.gov.co/ .
