History of Birth Certificates in South Africa as per Ancestry24 Ancestry 24


Birth certificates were officially introduced in South Africa the late 1800 and only

became compulsory  until 1905 in South Africa. The Cape in 1895, Natal in 1868,

Transvaal in 1901, Orange Free State in 1903 Not everybody registered their

child in the first month of birth. Some did it years later when they had more than

one child to register.

As our ancestors were not always very law abiding and despised the government

of the time not all births were registered.

For earlier  information a person have to consult have to consult baptism records,

death notices or burial records. Birth dates were not included into baptism registers

until around 1800 and in most instances it will say “date of birth unknown”. While

the Department of Home Affairs in Pretoria is the official custodian of birth records,

the general public may view these in the various provincial archival repositories.

Access to the birth registers is closed for

a period of 100 years to protect individuals.

Where to start you search.

You will first need to know in which magisterial district the birth took place as this will

determine which Archives those records are held. These indexes are not searchable

electronically except for the Western Cape Index on Ancestry24. If someone was born

in the Northern Cape, Eastern Cape or Western Cape the records will be in the Cape

Town Archives. Birth records from Natal would be in the Pietermaritzburg Archives etc. If birth place is unknown, you can consult the deceased estate papers and look at the death notice. This should show a place of birth, although often it gives just the city and not the magisterial district.

Next, consult the index to the birth in the magisterial area in which it was registered. For a birth in Cape Town you might need to check places like Cape Town Central, Wynberg, Docks, Green Point, Sea Point, Woodstock, Observatory etc – all in separate registers. It varies, but as an example, Worcester has 62 Birth Registers dating back to 1895. There are about four years per register until 1933 and one register per year thereafter. For Worcester, the earliest reference number is 1/3/57/4/1 and it covers births from 1895 to June 1905.

Information contained in the birth registers

Some of these books are very large, heavy and the pages are difficult to photograph because of their size. Once you have the particular register, you can get date of birth, child’s name if given, mother and father, parents’ address, when and where the birth was registered, if the child was legitimate as well as race. Copies of official birth certificates cannot be issued from the archives and photographs or photocopies of these registers are not allowed.

Other sources of birth dates

Apart from baptism records, you can consult inscriptions on tombstones. Backup evidence should be used to ensure the details are correct. The Government Gazette, which was established in 1800. Originally the title was Kaapsche Stads Courant en Africaansche Berigter – or known by the English as The Cape Town Gazette and African Advertiser. It had a regular column for births, marriage and deaths. These advertisements were placed mainly by English- speaking people until the 1870′s.

Ordering birth certificate copies

If you are looking for a copy of your own birth certificate or someone who died within the last 100 years, you need to apply to the Department of Home directly. B
