Uncertified copies of WA BMD's (or BDM's)wa birth cert sml

Good news for all genealogists and family historians - The Western Australian Dept of the Attorney General has recently decided to make uncertified copies (images) of historical birth, death and marriage certificates available to family historians - the best bit is that they are only A$20.00

Details are on their website on the link below, but note the proviso's as below...

Note:  Uncertified copies of original records may be of varying quality and legibility, handwritten or typed. Every effort is made to provide the best image quality possible but where the image is difficult to decipher the Registry is unable to transcribe the document or provide a refund. The birth, death and marriage records held at the Registry are confidential and are not available for viewing for family history research by members of the public or professional genealogists.
