== Record History  ==
+
 
+
For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. In 1999, some of the entries were published on 4 CDs by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the "Middle America Vital Records Index: Mexico." This index is an index of the births or christenings; marriages; and deaths or burials throughout Mexico. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.&nbsp;
+
 
+
=== Why This&nbsp;Record Was Created <br> ===
+
 
+
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing of this collection to help individuals find information about their ancestors.&nbsp;
+
 
+
=== Record 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 Mexico.&nbsp;<br>
+
 
+
== Record Description&nbsp;  ==
+
 
+
The index is an electronic database of information transcribed from original records.
+
 
+

+
== How to Use the Record  ==
+
 
+
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.&nbsp;<br>
