Jurisdictions

Mexico City is divided into 16 delegations. In order to narrow down the place where your ancestor lived it is vital that you identify which delegation they might have lived in. If you have a street address or the name of a neighborhood, you can use a city street map to locate the delegation. Another option would be to identify the name of the parish church in which they might have worshiped. You can then use that information to locate the address of the church within the city. It is most likely that they went to the Civil Registration office closest to their church.
