​The Registrars provides you with all the vital records to begin your family history journey.

Update, 25 January 2022:

Registrar Services are currently in discussions with the Mitchell Library,  working towards a re-opening date for the end of February.  It is likely that the centre will open one day per week initially, with the hope of increasing this to two days per week over the following month. The centre will also be open one Saturday per calendar month.

The appointment diary will open within the coming weeks as soon as a re-opening date for the centre is confirmed.
