Census records are especially valuable to quickly identify a family group, their residence, and the birthplace for each person along with their ages, which may help to search for other record types. Census records can provide information about persons where church and civil records may be incomplete. However, use the information with caution, since it may contain inaccuracies.

Title in the Language of the Records

Catastro y Censo General de la Ciudad de Guatemala de 1877.

What is in the Collection?

This collection of census enumerations of the city of Guatemala was taken in 1877.

The census enumeration pages are written in Spanish on ledger-style forms with columns. The genealogical information found in the census includes: name and surname, age at the time of the census, marital status, occupation, origin, gender, literacy and religion. The census is divided by canton.

This census covers only the city of Guatemala, which at the time contained the majority of the country’s population. The census was taken by regular citizens, therefore, there may be some errors in the spelling or data, as they recorded the information while the questions were answered verbally. The census enumerations are handwritten on ledger-style, legal-sized forms. The column headings at the top of the page are printed on the forms.

The census was taken to identify the living population, their education, origin, and social groups.

The census is a reliable source for statistical information. Some of the genealogical information that is not found in other records can be used to help research the exact vital data. Some data found in the census may also not be in the vital records.

These records are written in Spanish.

You can browse through images in this collection by visiting the browse page for Guatemala, Ciudad de Guatemala, Census, 1877.
