Registros Parroquiales de la Provincia de Santiago del Estero, Argentina

Record Description

This collection of church records for the period of 1581-1961 includes baptisms, marriages, and burials for parishes in the Santiago del Estero 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.
