This article aims at studying whether the Civil Registry Act of 1884 entailed the rupture or the continuation of the system of church certificates in force in Chile until that year. To that end, the records implemented in Chile from the Independence to the Government of Domingo Santa María and the Institutional development of the State during this last administration is researched. A comparative analysis between church certificates and civil certificates of 1885 is carried out.
