Registros Parroquiales de la Provincia de Capital Federal, Argentina

== What is in the Collection? ==
  
== Record Description  ==
+
These records are written in Spanish.
  
These records are in Spanish. This Collection will include records from 1737 to 1977.<br>
+
This collection includes records dating from 1737 to 1977 and contains baptism, confirmation, marriage, and death records from parishes in the Buenos Aires City as it existed at the end of the 20th century. Earlier registers are handwritten in narrative style, and later records were handwritten on printed forms.  
  
This collection includes baptism, confirmation, marriage and death records for the parishes of Inmaculada Concepción, Nuestra Señora de Balvanera, Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, Nuestra Señora de la Merced, Nuestra Señora de Montserrat, Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria, Nuestra Señora de la Piedad, Nuestra Señora del Carmen, Nuestra Señora del Pilar, Nuestra Señora del Socorro, San Bernardo, San Carlos Borromeo, San Cristóbal, San José de Flores, San Juan Evangelista, San Miguel Arcángel, San Nicolás de Bari, San Pedro González Telmo and Santa Lucia, Virgen y Mártir in the city of Buenos Aires.  
+
Argentina is subdivided into twenty-three provinces (Spanish: provincias, singular provincia) and one autonomous city (ciudad autónoma), Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, which is the federal capital of the nation (Spanish: '''Capital Federal''') as decided by Congress.
  
Earlier registers are handwritten in narrative style, and later records were handwritten on printed forms. Catholic Church parish registers are the major records available to identify individuals, parents, and spouses before 1930. After this date, civil authorities began registering vital statistics, which by law includes people of all religions. For genealogical purposes, the information in civil sources confirms and supplements the information in church records.  
+
Buenos Aires City, or Capital Federal, was founded in 1580 (after an aborted attempt 40 years earlier) and was part of the provinces in the area—first Asunción then Buenos Aires—until 1880, when the city was separated from Buenos Aires Province and federalized (put under direct control of the national government).  
  
Records from some of these parishes have been indexed and are searchable as part of this collection. Additional indexed records will be published as they become available.
+
'''General Information About Church Records'''
  
For a list of localities currently published in this collection, select the [https://familysearch.org/search/image/index#uri=https%3A//api.familysearch.org/records/collection/1974184/waypoints Browse] link from the collection landing page.  
+
Church records are crucial for genealogical research, since civil authorities did not begin registering vital statistics until after 1886. After this date one should search in both church and civil records as there may be information in one that does not appear in the other. For instance the church records may only list the godparents whereas the civil records may list the grandparents.  
  
=== Citation for This Collection  ===
+
Church records are the most important records for genealogical research in Argentina. The vast majority of Argentines were Catholic and were registered in the records of the local parish or diocese which are called registros parroquiales (parish registers). These records include entries for baptisms, marriage information, marriages, deaths, and burials. They can help you trace and link families. Often two and sometimes three generations are indicated in the records. In addition, church records may include church censuses, account books, confirmations, and other church-related records.
  
The following citation refers to the original source of the information published in FamilySearch.org Historical Records collections. Sources include the author, custodian, publisher, and archive for the original records.<br>
+
Some church records have been lost or have deteriorated due to natural effects, such as humidity and insects, and more dramatic events such as fire, floods and earthquakes. Civil and political strife have also caused the destruction of parish books. Some records were destroyed or damaged because of poor storage. However, many records considered lost are simply misplaced or misidentified.

+
In 1886 the civil government began keeping vital records (civil registration). If you are looking for ancestors who came before this time, then the Catholic Church parish registers are the best records available to identify these individuals, since church records were around for hundreds of years prior to civil registration. For civil vital records of births, deaths, and marriages after 1886, see [https://familysearch.org/wiki/en/Argentina_Civil_Registration Argentina Civil Registration] (Registro Civil).

What is in the Collection?

These records are written in Spanish.

This collection includes records dating from 1737 to 1977 and contains baptism, confirmation, marriage, and death records from parishes in the Buenos Aires City as it existed at the end of the 20th century. Earlier registers are handwritten in narrative style, and later records were handwritten on printed forms.

Argentina is subdivided into twenty-three provinces (Spanish: provincias, singular provincia) and one autonomous city (ciudad autónoma), Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, which is the federal capital of the nation (Spanish: Capital Federal) as decided by Congress.

Buenos Aires City, or Capital Federal, was founded in 1580 (after an aborted attempt 40 years earlier) and was part of the provinces in the area—first Asunción then Buenos Aires—until 1880, when the city was separated from Buenos Aires Province and federalized (put under direct control of the national government).

General Information About Church Records

Church records are crucial for genealogical research, since civil authorities did not begin registering vital statistics until after 1886. After this date one should search in both church and civil records as there may be information in one that does not appear in the other. For instance the church records may only list the godparents whereas the civil records may list the grandparents.

Church records are the most important records for genealogical research in Argentina. The vast majority of Argentines were Catholic and were registered in the records of the local parish or diocese which are called registros parroquiales (parish registers). These records include entries for baptisms, marriage information, marriages, deaths, and burials. They can help you trace and link families. Often two and sometimes three generations are indicated in the records. In addition, church records may include church censuses, account books, confirmations, and other church-related records.

Some church records have been lost or have deteriorated due to natural effects, such as humidity and insects, and more dramatic events such as fire, floods and earthquakes. Civil and political strife have also caused the destruction of parish books. Some records were destroyed or damaged because of poor storage. However, many records considered lost are simply misplaced or misidentified.

In 1886 the civil government began keeping vital records (civil registration). If you are looking for ancestors who came before this time, then the Catholic Church parish registers are the best records available to identify these individuals, since church records were around for hundreds of years prior to civil registration.

What Do I Do Next?

These records are in Spanish. For help reading the records, see the following wiki articles:

I Found Who I was Looking for, Now What?

  • 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 birth date or age along with the place of birth to find the family in census records.
  • Use the residence and names of the parents to locate church and land records.
  • Occupations listed can lead you to other types of records such as employment or military records.
  • Use the parents' birth places to find former residences and to establish a migration pattern for the family.
  • The name of the officiator is a clue to their religion or area of residence in the county. However, ministers may have reported marriages performed in other counties.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Use the marriage number to identify previous marriages.
  • When looking for a person who had a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which is correct.

I Can't Find Who I'm Looking for, Now What?

If you are unable to find the ancestors you are looking for, try the following:

  • Check for variant spellings of the surnames.
  • Search the records of nearby localities.
