Collection Time Period

 This index covers events from 1721-mid 1900s.

Collection History

For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. This index is an index of the births or christenings; marriages; and deaths or burials throughout Honduras. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region. 

Why This Collection Was Created

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing of this collection to help individuals find information about their ancestors..

Collection Reliability

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 Honduras. 

Collection Description

The index is an electronic database of information transcribed from original records.

The key genealogical facts found in birth or christening index entries may include:

This collection is a partial index of records for the localities listed below as of April 2010. The table below shows the number of records by locality. Localities not listed may not have any records in this collection.

Most of these records date from the time period indicated in the columns below; however, there may be records before and after these dates. Record counts where the locality information was incomplete are included below under the country name. Because of this, you may wish to search only by country.

How to Use the Collection

Use this index to help you learn more about your ancestors. 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.

In birth or christening records, if a surname is not listed for the child, the indexer often assigns the father’s surname to the child. This surname may not be correct. So if you are looking for a birth or christening, search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.
