Enquire about births, deaths and marriages data

The Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages (RBDM) records all births, deaths and marriages that occur in Queensland.

The data we hold can help organisations and institutional or educational researchers:

  • confirm life events
  • match or cleanse databases
  • conduct research and analysis.

You can get this data once, or on a recurring basis.

We are the Australian Coordinating Registry (ACR) and can also help you access national death data files. If you require data from a specific state or territory outside of Queensland, contact the interstate registering authority.

Who can use the form

Only organisations and institutional or educational researchers can use this application form.

If you are researching your family tree (or if you are a genealogist) we offer a free online search facility for Queensland historical records.

Individuals can apply online for a Queensland birth, death or marriage certificate.

Purpose of this form

So we can meet your needs, please tell us (specifically):

  • the exact information or data you want
  • how you intend to use it
  • why you need it.

The details you provide will help us direct you to the most suitable products or services.

What happens next

After you submit this application form, we’ll contact you within 10 business days to discuss how our products and services can help you and how much it will cost.

Your responsibilities

To access the data we hold, you must agree to:

  • manage the data in a way that protects people’s privacy.

Some requests may need ethics approval before you can access the data.
