Reverse marriages: What are they?

 Western Australian marriage records are listed in an microfiched index with a person’s name, year of marriage, registration number and locality. It’s tricky to find the name of a spouse in the records as you need to look through many marriage records to find the same registration number for a given year.

A database matching up Western Australian marriage records from 1906 is available online for people researching their family history, and has been growing year by year. It is currently up to 1965.

Birth, marriage and death records prior to 1906 continue to be available on the W.A. Justice Department website at the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages in Western Australia.
