Searching Western Australian Online Indexes
The registry offers free online historic index searching of births, deaths and marriages from 1841.
To search from the index select from the birth, death and marriage radio buttons below.
The more details you enter, the more filtered your search results. If you are unsure of spelling, try typing the first couple of letters of a name. For example, enter "math" if you don’t know if you are looking for "Mathieson" or "Matheson".
To further broaden your search you can prefix the field with the ‘%’ key. For example, if you type ‘%Mary’, the search will return all instances of that name contained anywhere within that field eg Mary Jane, Emily Mary, Maryllia, etc.
Similarly, if you enter ‘%Ver’, the search will list all instances of that string of letters contained anywhere within that field eg Vera, Veronica, Oliver, Beverley, etc.
