BDM Certificate transcription service
Adelaide Proformat has been
providing a transcription service for South Australian birth,
marriage and death certificates (vital records) since mid
The work is undertaken by using the filmed district registrars'
certificates and you should check
the availability of certificates before ordering.
Clients should also note that some early South Australian
certificates cannot be transcribed (usually pre 1856) as
the films are not available for viewing. The District Registrar
Birth Death and Marriage duplicate certificate is identical
to the 'original' held in the Principal Registry.
There are examples of District Registrar Birth Death and
Marriage duplicate certificate being the only example available
as the Principal Registry never received their copy!
The transcription is produced in the same format as the
original and contains everything written and printed on
the certificate plus sourcing details and explanatory notes
NOTE: In the examples below the company logo appears—in the versions purchased privately this is omitted.:
Adelaide Proformat undertakes transcriptions
once a week and posts/emails them the next day.
The normal delivery process is an attached emailed PDF file
or postage within AUS at no additional charge.
To order a transcription just complete appropriate sections
in the form.
