Jamaica Registrar General’s Department Records

Brief History.

The established Church was Anglican, Church of England or known in North America as Episcopalian. Their records are cataloged by Parish. There are 14 currently parishes, but an additional 7 parishes existed in the past with some parish records beginning as early as 1668, others start as late as 1804.

There are hand written alphabetical indexes for each parish. Up to 1824, each parish had a separate book with baptisms, marriages and burials included. In 1824, the Diocese of Jamaica was established with its own Bishop of Jamaica and the system of recording changed with many parishes in the same volume Also before 1824, births, deaths and marriages were in the same volume, but after there were separate volumes for these events.

In Jamaica however, you can assume that burials took place either on the same day or the day after death, because there was no way of preserving the body for any length of time in the tropical heat. Christenings could be separated by a long time from date of birth. Sometimes the family waited until they had a son, before all the older girls were baptized with the son.

Law 6 Registers Church Records take you up to 1870-72, but overlap with what are called Law 6 registers. These are government registers and started in 1866 up to Civil registration. They are separated into births, marriages and deaths. There are separate indexes for Law 6 registers, so you will have to use these first before you get to the original record.

Civil Registration of births and deaths began April 1, 1878 began in Jamaica in 1880 and is catalogued by Parish. The originals of the Jamaican records are held in the Registrar General's Office in Spanish Town, Jamaica.
