There are some records for Jersey on Jerripedia:
https://www.theislandwiki.org/index.php/Jerripedia
And especially JerripediaBMD (JerripediaBMD.net)

Guernsey is a separate State, and there may be something on The Island Wiki?
But see:

Also see The Priaulx Library:

All birth records are held on micro film at the Priaulx library.  They will do searches for you at a charge.  Have to got many to do and what info do you have.  I may be able to go and do the search for you.

I am trying to find details of my great great grandfather's birth on Guernsey.  His name was Thomas Alexander Morris.  He was born about 1836.  His father was Bernard William Morris, and I think his mother was Elizabeth.  The family moved to Jersey by 1841.

Any help appreciated.

Thank you for that information.  Is there anyway I can get parish records for birth in Guernsey circa 1836?
