FamilySearch Record Search This article describes a collection of historical records available at FamilySearch.org.

Title in the Language of the Record

Registros Parroquiales de la Provincia de San Juan, Argentina

Record Description

This collection of church records for the period of 1665 to -1975 includes baptisms, marriages, and burials for parishes in the San Juan Province. Earlier registers were handwritten in narrative style; later records were handwritten on printed forms. Catholic Church parish registers are the major records available to identify individuals, parents, and spouses before 1930. After this date, civil authorities began registering vital statistics, which by law includes people of all religions. For genealogical purposes, the information in civil sources confirms and supplements the information in church records. Records from some of these parishes have been indexed and are searchable as part of this collection. Additional indexed records will be published as they become available.

For a list of localities currently published in this collection, select the Browse link from the collection landing page.

How to Use the Record

To browse this collection you will need to follow this series of links:
Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page
⇒ Select the “Ciudad o Pueblo” category
⇒ Select the “Parroquia” category
⇒ Select the “Tipo de Registro y Años” which takes you to the images.

Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.

For example:

  • Use the marriage date and place as the basis for compiling a new family group or for verifying existing information.
  • Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth of each partner to find a couple's birth records and parents' names.
  • Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records.
  • Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church and land records.
  • Occupations listed can lead you to other types of records such as employment or military records.
  • Use the parents’ birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
  • The name of the officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the county. However, ministers may have reported marriages performed in other counties.
  • Compile the marriage entries for every person who has the same surname as the bride or groom; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
  • Continue to search the marriage records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the bride and groom who may have married in the same county or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family or even the second marriage of a parent. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.
  • Use the marriage number to identify previous marriages.
  • When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.

Keep in mind:

  • The information in church records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.
  • Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after the late 1800.
  • There is also some variation in the information given from one record to another.

If you are unable to find the ancestors you are looking for, try the following:

  • Check for variant spellings of the surnames.
  • Check for a different index. There are often indexes at the beginning of each volume.
  • Search the indexes and records of nearby localities.
