Brief History of Birth Certificates in South Africa

Registrations of birth only became compulsory in South Africa in 1905 .


Registrations of birth started in the Cape 1n 1895, Natal 1868, Transvaal 1901 and Orange Free State in 1903


Unfortunately besides our ancestors not being the most law abiding folks around and due to illiteracy and lack of infrastructure especially in the rural areas not all births were registered and some were registered long after the births.


To obtain birth records of births before the 1900 is a vast task and the information has to be obtained from:

 • Baptism records

 • Burial records

 • Government archives

 • Deceased Estate records

 • Death notices

 • Old Government Gazettes


A Birth certificate is a certificate issued by your country of birth to confirm and acknowledge the registration of your birth in that specific country.
