== How to Use the Records ==
To search the collection, select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page ⇒ Select the “Nombre Nombre de Ciudad/Pueblo” Pueblo ⇒ Select “Nombre the Nombre de Parroquia” Parroquia ⇒ Select “Tipo the Tipo de registro y años” años which takes you to the images.
Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.
In most cases, Mexican Catholic parish registers are the only records before 1859 that identify individuals, parents, and spouses. After this date, civil authorities began registering vital statistics (nacimientos, matrimonies, y defunciones) that by law include people of all religions. The information in civil sources confirms and supplements the information in church records. Be sure to search both the parish and civil records after 1860.
