SINGAPORE: BDM records - searchable??
« on: Wednesday 15 May 19 07:51 BST (UK) »
Hi all

Does anyone know if there is a way to "search" BDM records for Singapore?

I've had a look at the https://eservices.ica.gov.sg site, where you can request an extract for a birth or death (if you know the date or period) but can't find anything about marriages.

An acquaintance wants to search for grandparents and GGPs. Circa early 1900s.

Thank you

The digitised newspapers can be a useful resource:  http://eresources.nlb.gov.sg/newspapers/Digitised/

As far as I know, they are not searchable online via the internet.

The newspapers ShaunJ mentioned are probably your best bet.

Wemyss/Crombie/Laing/Blyth (West Wemyss)
Givens/Normand (Dysart)
Clark/Lister (Dysart)
Wilkinson/Simson (Kettle or Kettlehill)
