This collection includes civil registration records, censuses, military records, and other miscellaneous records microfilmed and digitized at municipal archives in the province of Barcelona, Spain from the years 1583 to 1936.  
  
Civil registration in Spain was established by law in 1870. Records are mostly handwritten on a printed form, following a chronological order. The civil registration records dating before 1870 were created with the information from church parish registers.  
+
The records are in Spanish; see the section "For Help Reading these Records" for access to translation helps.  
  
Municipal census records differ from the national census in that it is an administrative tool used by the municipality. The census registers were handwritten in Spanish on formatted registers.  
+
Additional images will be published as they become available.  
  
Municipal military draft records were carried out almost every year to fill in the conscript quota. The process for the draft was long; it included first the preparation of a list of all men in age for the draft, then approval, sorting of men, notifications, exemptions, medical exam, etc.

== How to Use the Record  ==
 
== How to Use the Record  ==
  
The civil registration of birth, marriage, and death are great records to research for genealogical data. These records contain important information to continue research for one or more generations. In order to find an entry in these records it is necessary to know the name, place, and year of a vital event in the life of the ancestor being searched.  
+
Some record sets have indexes; these indexes were created at the end of the year. Copy errors could have been made in the index, so you want to find the actual record to verify the information is correct. Using the index is a helpful way to find the actual record.  
  
The municipal censuses are helpful to find enough genealogical data to research an ancestor and extended relatives in other types of records. These records are great if civil or church records are not available, just remember the data is not 100% accurate. To search this census, it is necessary to know the name of the head of household and the name of the municipality where the ancestor lived.  
+
See the sections below for tips and uses for searching and finding the record of your ancestor in this collection and using the information in the record.  
  
The military drafts documents are not listed in any specific order, but these are in the year of the draft order. Therefore, if you know the approximate year when your ancestor was at the age of 18 to 20, you may find some information.  
+
If you are unable to find a record for your ancestor in this collection, see the corresponding section below.

=== Search the Collection ===

'''To search by index:'''<br> Fill in the requested information in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the ancestors in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to look at several images and compare the information about the individuals listed in those images to your ancestors to make this determination.<br>
 +
 
 +
'''To search by image:'''<br> To Browse the collection you will need to follow this series of links:<br>⇒ Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page<br>⇒ Select the City or Municipality <br>⇒ Select the Parish <br>⇒ Select the Record Type and Years which takes you to the images.

Search the collection by image comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine if the image relates to them. You may need to look at several images and compare the information about the individuals listed in those images to your ancestors to make this determination.
 +
 
 +
'''When searching:'''<br> As you are searching it is helpful to know such information as your ancestor’s given name and surname, some identifying information such as residence and age, and family relationships. Remember that there may be more than one person in the records with the same name as your ancestor and that your ancestor may have used nicknames or different names at different times.

 +
=== For Help Reading These Records  ===
 +
 
 +
These records are in Spanish. For help reading the records, see the following wiki articles:
 +
 
 +
*[[Spanish Genealogical Word List]]
 +
*[https://familysearch.org/learningcenter/results.html?fq=place%3A%22Spain%22 Reading Spanish handwritten records]
 +
*[https://script.byu.edu/Pages/Spanish/en/welcome.aspx Script tutorial for Spanish]
 +
 
 +
=== Using the Information ===
 +
 
 +
*Use the marriage date and place as the basis for compiling a new family group or for verifying existing information.
 +
*Use the birth date or age along with the place of birth of each partner to find a couple's birth records and parents' names.
 +
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church records [[Spain Catholic Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]].
 +
*Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
 +
*The name of a marriage officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the province. However, ministers may have reported marriages performed in other provinces.
 +
*Compile the marriage entries for every person who has the same surname as the bride or groom; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
 +
*Use the marital status (whether a divorce or death dissolved a marriage) to identify previous marriages.
 +
*Witnesses often were relatives of the parents.
 +
 
 +
=== Tips to Keep in Mind  ===
 +
 
 +
When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.
 +
 
 +
For death records, the information in records is usually reliable, but depends upon the knowledge of the informant.
 +
 
 +
Regarding marriage and death records, name changes, shortened names, or nicknames may have been used by your ancestors, so pay attention to other relationships (parents, spouse, siblings, children, etc.) that can confirm whether you have the right person/record.
 +
 
 +
Continue to search the marriage records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives of the bride and groom who may have married in the same county or nearby. This can help you identify other generations of your family or even the second marriage of a parent. Repeat this process for each new generation you identify.
 +
 
 +
Continue to search the indexes and records to identify children, siblings, parents, and other relatives who may have lived in the same area or a nearby area.
 +
 
 +
=== Unable to Find your Ancestor?  ===
 +
 
 +
A boundary change could have occurred that changed where records were kept. If you are unable to find your ancestor(s) in these civil registers, then try searching in the areas surrounding Barcelona.  
 +
 
 +
Church records are also a good substitute when birth, marriage, and death records can’t be found or are unavailable.

Using the Information

  • Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church records Spain Catholic Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records).
  • Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
  • The name of a marriage officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the province. However, ministers may have reported marriages performed in other provinces.
  • Compile the marriage entries for every person who has the same surname as the bride or groom; this is especially helpful in rural areas or if the surname is unusual.
  • Use the marital status (whether a divorce or death dissolved a marriage) to identify previous marriages.
  • Witnesses often were relatives of the parents.

Tips to Keep in Mind

When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.

For death records, the information in records is usually reliable, but depends upon the knowledge of the informant.

Regarding marriage and death records, name changes, shortened names, or nicknames may have been used by your ancestors, so pay attention to other relationships (parents, spouse, siblings, children, etc.) that can confirm whether you have the right person/record.
