Anatomy of a Death Record: Examples from both sides of the language border.

Deaths have been recorded by civil registrars in Belgium since about 1796. The task of reporting the death to the authorities usually fell on two family members or neighbors of the deceased. Today the task is most commonly handled by an undertaker who submits the medical certificate, created by the physician, to the town clerk.

Until March 2019, each town created two copies of each death register. Keep in mind that in small towns, births, marriages, and deaths may have been recorded in one single register. The original copy was kept by the town, the duplicate sent to Court of First Appeal. As of 31 March 2019, all civil registration records are recorded electronically only in a national civil registration database (Databank Akten Burgerlijke Stand (DABS) or Banque de données  centrale  d’actes  de  l’état  civil (BAEC).1

Most often each death record contains the following:

  • complete name of the deceased
  • residence of the deceased
  • date and place of birth of the deceased
  • place, date, and hour of death
  • when applicable, complete names of the deceased’s spouse(s)
  • when applicable, whether or not the deceased is widowed
  • complete names and residence of the deceased’s parents
  • whether or not the deceased’s parents are deceased
  • complete names, age, and residence of the informants
  • when applicable, the relationship of the informants to the deceased

Earlier acts may not give the exact date of birth but rather record the age. Sometimes the occupations of the deceased and the informants are also given.

What you will not find in Belgian death records is the cause of death. Even today the medical certificate of death is handed over to the registrar in a sealed envelope which is sent to the nation’s health department for statistical purposes only. The originals are subsequently destroyed.

Special Cases

  • Stillborn children are recorded in the death registers only (not in the birth registers). They were not given names until recently.
  • If death occurs in a hospital – more common in cities –  the law requires it to be reported by the hospital (not family members or neighbors) within 24 hours.
  • When death occurs away from home, the registrar who records the death must send an extract of the record to his colleague in the deceased’s latest town of residence. As a result you will find the deceased’s name in the indexes of both registers.
  • If the deceased is unknown, the registrar writes a deposition containing as much information as possible about the deceased.
  • In the case of violent death (or suspicion thereof) the police must write a deposition before the deceased can be buried.
  • If the deceased is a foreigner, an extract is sent to the Ministry of Justice so that it can be added to the deceased’s “alien file.” Quite often, the extract is also sent to his or her country of origin.

Access

A recent change in Belgian law has made death records accessible to the public after 50 years. One can request permission to access closed records of direct ancestors for genealogical purposes from the Courts of First Instance, but changes to this may be forthcoming.2

Microfilm and digital copies

Most of the nineteenth century and some early twentieth century registers have been microfilmed by the Church of Latter Day Saints and have since been digitized. The results are available online at FamilySearch (for a quick list go to  https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Belgium_Civil_Registration#FamilySearch) and the Belgian State Archives (for a list go to https://search.arch.be/en/themas/tips/516-civil-status-registers-en). Don’t forget to register at both places. Look for Overlijdens or Decès.  For more tips on how to navigate both sites, see my earlier posts Navigating Belgian Vital Records at the State Archives: A Walloon Example and Navigating Belgian Vital Records at FamilySearch: A Flemish Example. Access to the FamilySearch records is also possible via Genver.

Where are the original copies?

Many towns, though not all, have deposited their old original copies with a regional branch of the State Archives. For Flanders this is the branch in Beveren-Waas (East Flanders). For Brussels and Wallonia this is the branch in Brussels-Vorst.3Visitors are not allowed to consult the original registers but must rely on microfilm or digital copies. Some towns, e.g. Kalmthout and Kontich, have held on to their nineteenth century registers.  If you are lucky, these communes will allow you to see the original copies.4

For more recent records you can email or write the town in English, French, German, or Dutch. Most will happily send or email you a copy of the record you are seeking. An easy way to find the mailing or email address is to google the name of the town followed by “burgerzaken,” “etat civil,” or “standesamt.” Check the FamilySearchWiki for help with writing your letter.

The duplicate copies that were made for the Courts of First Appeal were sent to the State Archives (Rijksarchief – Archives de l’État) after 100 years. Visitors are again not allowed to consult the original registers but must rely on microfilm or digital copies.

Indexes

At the end of each year, the clerk creates an index for the completed register. Usually this index is found at the end of the register.

Every ten years, a decennial index is created. Pre-1807 registers may not have an annual index, as clerks were not yet required to make one. Most older decennial indexes have also been digitized and can therefore be browsed online.

Alas, the searchable indexes at Ancestry, FamilySearch, and the Belgian State Archives are far from complete. Local or regional genealogical societies in Belgium have in a few cases created their own indexes. Links to some of them can be found at Digitale Bronbewerkingen Nederland and België.

Reading Belgian Death Records

Reading death records is not that hard, even when you are unfamiliar with the language, as they were written according to a set formula. A handy glossary of Dutch and French terms can be found in Jozef Goethals’ guide Searching for Flemish (Belgian) Ancestors.5. Or check out the lengthy vocabulary list of Rob van Drie.6Online, the Belgian, French, and Netherlands research tools at FamilySearch Research Wiki have helpful lists of words and common phrases.

The following six examples, each one a little different, demonstrate how to dissect both French- and Dutch-language death records from Belgium. My translations are quite literal, which does not always result into fluent English.

1. François Joseph Lambeau, died in 1866 in Hamme-Mille, Walloon Brabant

François Joseph Lambeau, the great-great-grandfather of Earl Louis “Curly” Lambeau (1898–1965), founder, player, and the first coach of the Green Bay Packers, died in Hamme-Mille (Walloon Brabant) on 26 January 1866. His death record is a good example of a typical Walloon record from the mid-nineteenth century.7

2. Jean François Lambeau, died in 1905 in Antwerp.

Curly’s great-grandfather, Jean François Lambeau, passed away on 25 February 1905 in Antwerp.8 As you will see, civil registration records in large cities such as Antwerp have a slightly different format than their rural counterparts.

4. Stillborn child, Antwerp, 1865.

A similar Flemish example is found in the Antwerp 1866 death register. On 31 December 1865 in Antwerp, Anna Maria Dielis gave birth to a stillborn child. The child’s death was recorded after the New Year on 2 January 1866.10

6. Clemence Edelborgh from Roeselare, died in Ronse in 1900.

On 22 october 1900, Clemence Edelborgh, a 26-year-old street vendor from Roeselare, died in the inn of Pierre Boone in Ronse. As prescribed by law, the city of Ronse created an extract of her death record and sent it to Roeselare, where it was entered in the death register on 1 December 1900. The Roeselare death record was numbered within the regular sequence, but recorded, along with seventy-three other out-of-town death records, at the end of the register.12
