Tracing your family tree - searches of birth, marriage and death indexes

If you wish to trace your family tree by birth, marriage or death, and the event occurred on Anglesey, then we can trace the entry for you and supply a certificate as long as you are able to provide us with enough information.

Tracing your family tree

Please note: Tracing your family tree in Anglesey is a difficult task as Anglesey was divided into eight districts for births and deaths each with its own index which the staff must inspect manually. There were 82 parish churches in Anglesey each with its own index plus indices for chapels and register offices and requires extensive searching. Please note: pre 1872, some births were not registered.

How do I apply for a copy birth, death or marriage certificate?

Please provide the following information with your request:

  1. The type of certificate you are seeking: birth, marriage or death
  2. The name or names the certificate applies to
  3. The date of the event
  4. The place of the event
  5. Any other relevant information that may help us to locate the certificate

The General Register Office holds a central copy of all registrations for England and Wales. Local Register Offices hold records of events registered in their area.

Please see the Anglesey Registrar Charges page for the current cost of a copy certificate. Copies of The Anglesey Registrar Office application forms are available on our site.

Copy certificates can also be ordered online from the General Registry Office using a debit or credit card.

For further information on the local history of Anglesey, census returns and pre 1837 sources please contact the Anglesey County Archives Service.

Indexes to Anglesey marriages 1837-1937 are available on CD in the larger libraries and the Archives Services and indexes to some births are available in the Archives.
