Chile BMDs

Postby RoseR » Sun Mar 29, 2020 11:13 am

I wonder If anyone has access to thee BMDs for Chile after the 1930s. I have a Scottish man who went out to Patagonia to work on a sheep farm in 1914. There’s an excellent website called PatBrit which has enabled me to find a few details for him. I know he married in Punta Arenas in 1921 and the Consular Death Indices show that his wife died in 1945. I believe he then married a local woman and had a daughter, the daughter dying in the late 1960s. But I have no way of finding out the name of his second wife or daughter.

There are also two possible deaths for the man himself, with headstones in the Anglican Church in Punta Arenas. One of these has two other names, both of them Spanish. I understand that Spanish women don’t change their names on marriage which makes things more difficult.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

It appears that online Chile civil registration records only go up to circa 1930. This link's document should provide helpful info on how to research and obtain post-1930 records. http://files.lib.byu.edu/family-history ... /Chile.pdf

Thank you, that’s helpful. I knew there was nothing online after the 1930s. It would help if I could read Spanish which unfortunately I don’t!

Reference reading Spanish. Google translate does a pretty good job with its translations. Even if the phrasing is a little clunky you'd get the general gist of what was being said

Thanks for that. I have used Google translate and have found it useful. I think my problem is that there just aren’t the records available for Chile. I appreciate the suggestions I’ve received but think this could be a brick wall for some time
