⇒Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page

For Help Reading These Records
These records are in Spanish. For help reading the records see the following guides:
Tips to Keep in Mind
When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
Titles may be clues to property ownership, occupations, rank, or status within the community.
Continue to search the index and records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives.
Unable to Find your Ancestor?
A boundary change could have occurred and the record of your ancestor is now in a neighboring province.
Church records are also a good substitute when birth, marriage, and death records can’t be found or are unavailable.
Or your ancestor immigrated to another country. Search the records of nearby areas or immigration/emigration records.
