The Anglican Church of Southern Africa, previously known as the Church of the Province of Southern Africa, is the province of the Anglican Communion in Southern Africa. Its primate is the Archbishop of Cape Town. The church includes dioceses in present day South Africa, Mozambique, Namibia, Angola, Lesotho, Swaziland and St. Helena.
An agreement was signed in 1937 between the Church of the Province of South Africa (CPSA) - now known as the Anglican Church of Southern Africa (ACSA) - and the University of the Witwatersrand, whereby the church's central record library was places on loan with the University. The library consisted of books, pamphlets, periodicals and manuscripts. The richness of the Anglican Church's manuscript collection is due to the efforts of the provincial archivists appointed by the church to collect material and transfer it to the university. The first, 1937-1957, was Father Osmund Victor, followed by Canon Cecil Thomas Wood from 1958-1979. Mrs AR Kotze then took over from 1979-2000, until Carol Archibald was appointed as Provincial Archivist in 2001.

This Index provides a listing of the digitised Registers of the Anglican Church in Southern Africa, which are now available on DVDs and on the website of the Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They cover the years 1850-2004 and include baptism, marriage and burial records.
The Anglican Church in South Africa itself was originally organised in four provinces, namely the Diocese of the Cape of Good Hope, Diocese of Natal, Diocese of the Orange Free State and the Diocese of Transvaal. These provinces were later divided into more Dioceses. The records on the website of the Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been arranged according to the original four Provinces. The records on the DVDs are arranged as listed.
