What is in the Collection?

This collection of miscellaneous records covers the years 1570 to 1882.

These are miscellaneous records kept at the Historical Archive of the State of San Luis Potosi (Archivo Histórico del Estado de San Luis Potosí). These records include notary records, military records, censuses, passports, birth records, marriage records, death records, and so on. Records are handwritten for the most part with the text in Spanish.

Records in this collection were created by authorized officials and kept for the most part at a local archive. In time, the information was passed to a major archive for preservation. The archive has approximately one hundred and sixty collections. Some of the most relevant are the following:

  • Mayor Municipality of Charcas (1657-1852), inheritance information, legacies, and various kinds of news from the Municipality of Charcas and the Altiplano.
  • Mayor Municipality of San Luis Potosí (1554-1841). Public notary protocols, trade news, government, etc.
  • Municipality of San Luis Potosí (1593-1992). Council minutes, and trade, finance, and war records.
  • State Cadastre (1886-1981). Legal estate and rural and urban architectural plans of the state.
  • Joint Land Commission (1916-1992). Extensions, allocations, deprivation and general investigation of parcel usufruct. (Usufruct is the legal right to use the fruits or profits of something belonging to someone else.)
  • Civil Registry (1860-1930). Guardianship proceedings, presentations, and records of births, marriages, and deaths.
  • Public Registry of Property and Commerce (1755-1976). Protocols and appendices of scribes and notary publics.
  • General Secretariat of Government (1825-1961). Meat supply, books of brotherhoods, land disputes, elections, and electoral rolls.
  • Supreme Court (1737-1970). Plenary, criminal, civil, and administrative proceedings.

Only some of the above sources may have been acquired for publishing in FamilySearch.

Each type of record was created for a different purpose, but most were created to keep track of the vital events happening in the lives of the citizens and to safeguard their legal interests and the legal interests of their heirs and that of a government entity.

Vital records are the most reliable records for family history research. However, other records may serve as secondary sources, especially when vital records are not available. It could also supplement other information that may help to identify an ancestor.

These records are written in Spanish.
