How to Use the Record

To search the collection select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page
⇒ Select the “Record”
⇒ Select the “Provincia”
⇒Select the “Distrito o municipalidad”
⇒ Select the "Tipo de registro y años" which takes you to the images.

Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.

When you have located your ancestor’s birth, marriage, or death record, carefully evaluate each piece of information about them. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors. For example:

  • Use the date along with the place to find the family in church or other records.
  • The parent’s birth places can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.
