Usually separate registers were maintained for baptisms, marriages, and deaths. However, in localities with a small population the records of baptisms, marriages, and burials were recorded in the same register. Confirmations were usually recorded with the baptismal registers, but can also be found with deaths or marriages. Generally, entries were created in chronological order. Early registers may have some ecclesiastical documents written in Latin.

Record Description

This collection of the Catholic Church parish records of the State of Hidalgo covers the years from 1546-1963. Catholic Church parish records cover 95 to 100% of the city’s population. This collection only includes the parish records that were centralized into the diocesan archive.

Mexican Catholic Church parish registers were created to record baptisms, confirmations, marriages, and burials occurring in the parish. Catholic Church parish records are a reliable source for doing Mexican genealogical research.

Usually separate registers were maintained for baptisms, marriages, and deaths. However, in localities with a small population the records of baptisms, marriages, and burials were recorded in the same register. Confirmations were usually recorded with the baptismal registers, but can also be found with deaths or marriages. Generally, entries were created in chronological order. Early registers may have some ecclesiastical documents written in Latin.
