Here at the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages Victoria (BDM), we've been keeping records of significant life moments since the mid 1800s. You can search our historical indexes of births, baptisms, marriages, burials and deaths dating back to as early as 1836. Our records are available as instantly downloadable PDF images (not for official use) or mailed hard copy certificates (for official use).

We also offer data services for larger organisations, such as government departments, universities and corporates.
