NOTE: There are no valid records for Rincón > Nuestra Señora del Carmen.

Question #9: Where can I find Río Piedras > Nuestra Señora del Pilar > Defunciones 1871-1873?
Answer #9: Defunciones 1810-1873 should read as Defunciones 1870-1873. There was no corresponding film for Defunciones 1810-1873, and that there was no browse point for Film 2237962: Defunciones, 1870-1893 (oct.) covering the years 1870-1873. A typo must have occurred when someone entered 1810 instead of 1870.

Question #10: Where can I find Río Piedras > Nuestra Señora del Pilar marriage records for 1844-1853?
Answer #10: Río Piedras > Nuestra Señora del Pilar > Matrimonios 1812-1853 only has records up to 1843 (as per Catalog Film notes for Film 2237957, Item 5). At this time, there are no marriage records for 1844-1853 available online or on microfilm.

Question #11: The browse point Río Grande > Nuestra Señora del Carmen > Índice de Matrimonios 1864-1868 refers to pages (or folios) that do not exist in the browse point Río Grande > Nuestra Señora del Carmen > Matrimonios 1864-1868, which contains the actual marriage records. Where can these pages be found?
Answer #11: Unfortunately, Pages 71-250 (and the years 1868-1883) are missing from Río Grande > Nuestra Señora del Carmen marriage records, online and in the Catalog. Page 70 is the last page within Matrimonios 1864-1868, and Matrimonios 1883-1887 starts with Page 251. You will not find the pages on Film 2238190, Item 5: Matrimonios v. 2, (may.) 1864-1868 (mar.), or Film 2238099: Item 1-3: Matrimonios v. 2-4, (dic.) 1863 [1883]-1944 (aug.).

Question #12: Are there missing pages in Toa Alta > San Fernando > Defunciones, 1888-1911, 1843-1859 (morenos y esclavos) -- Matrimonios, 1818-1881?
Answer #12: In the browse point Toa Alta > San Fernando > Defunciones, 1888-1911, 1843-1859 (morenos y esclavos) -- Matrimonios, 1818-1881, there are small groups of missing pages throughout the Film 2239623, Item 3.
