This Collection will include records from 1645 to 1930.  
  
This index is an electronic database of information. The entries are primarily from the [[International Genealogical Index|International Genealogical Index]] (IGI) along with some entries derived from compiled and original records such as:

The collection's index is not complete for any particular place or region and may include information previously published in the International Genealogical Index or Vital Records Index collections.
  
*Family Records

Children were generally baptized within a few days of birth. Baptismal records usually give the place and date of baptism and birth, infant's name and parents' names. If the child died within a few days of baptism, the death information may also be included.  
*Church Records
+
*Civil Registration
+
 
+
It may also include indexes generated by the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church.
+
 
+
There may be entries that cite a specific source such as the following:
+
 
+
*"Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850: a Family Register for the People" by James Arnold
+
*"Paul Dingwell Genealogical Collection" by Paul Dingwell
+
*A county or state vital record registration
+
 
+
These entries are in this collection for one of the following reasons:
+
 
+
*They were submitted by private individuals to the LDS Church and as such are part of the IGI resulting in their inclusion in this index.
+
*They have been indexed through the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church. If this is the case, the index they are a part of has been included as part of this database.
+
 
+
The Vital Record Index databases are not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records although some sub-indexes (an index to a set of records within the database) have been found. When we identify a sub-index, we remove it from the database and post it separately on FamilySearch under its appropriate title.
+
 
+
This index is not complete for any particular place or region.
+
 
+
For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. This index is an index of some births or christenings; marriages; and deaths or burials throughout Argentina. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.
+
 
+
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing of this collection to help individuals find information about their ancestors.
+
 
+
Church records and civil registration were official records and are some of the most reliable sources of information available for those who were born, married, or died in Argentina.

== How to Use the Record  ==
+
 
+
Fill in the requested information in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the ancestors in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to find your ancestor.
+
 
+
The information could help you identify family relationships and lineages as well as direct you to original records of your ancestors, which may contain additional information.
+
 
+
Depending on the time period and place there may not be a surname listed in the original records. When that happened, the indexer often assigned a surname based on the father's surname which may not be correct. So if you are looking for a birth/christening, search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.
+
