Births (“nacimientos”) were usually registered by the infant’s father or by a neighbor or friend of the family within a few days of the event. In general, a birth record will normally include the day and time of the birth, the name of the newborn, names of parents, the town where the birth occurred, which may be different than where it was registered, and the address of the house or hospital in which the birth took place. Also, it may include family information. For example, the age of the parents, their birthplaces or residences, marital status, professions, and the number of other children born to the mother. You may also find information about the grandparents. Corrections or additions to a birth record may have been added as a note in the margin.

What information will I find on a marriage certificate?

Information about the marriage (“casamiento”) may include the ages of the bride and groom, their occupations, civil status, and residence. In fact, current civil marriage records even include street addresses.

The Catholic Church continued keeping records after the creation of the civil registration in 1886, hence two types of records are available for marriages. Thus, we urge our clients to search for both records.

What about divorce records?

Divorces (“divorcios”) are not recorded within the civil registration system in Argentina, but rather in the courts. You may obtain information from divorce records by contacting our Firm. Our Lawyers will search the court of the town, city or municipality where the divorce took place.

What information will I find on a death certificate?

Death records (“certificado de defunción”) normally give the name, date, and place of death. The record may also include a variety of data. For example, the age or date of birth of a child, place of residence, occupation, the cause of death, burial information, and the informant’s name often a relative. They usually provide the name of a spouse or parents.

On the other hand, please note that information about parents, birth date, and the birthplace of the deceased person and other information in a death record may be unreliable. Mainly, because whoever gave the information may not have had complete information about the subject.
