Title in the Language of the Records

Registros Parroquiales de la Iglesia Católica en Nicaragua

Record Description

This collection of baptisms, marriages, and burials was created by authorized parish priests in the years 1740-1960. Most of the inhabitants of Nicaragua were Roman Catholics, therefore these records may cover about 95% to 100% of the population from the 16th to the 20th century.

It is common to see the sacramental ordinances of baptism, marriage, and burial in separate registers, however in smaller towns these records may all be recorded in one yearly book. The entries were normally made in chronological order. Some confirmations may be found within the baptisms. The earlier parish records were all handwritten in narrative form, and later records were handwritten in formatted entries. All records were handwritten in Spanish.

The parish registers may be the only records available for genealogical research before civil registration was implemented in 1879.

Digital images of originals housed at various municipal archives throughout Nicaragua.
