Title in the Language of the Records

Registros Parroquiales de la Iglesia Católica del Estado de Michoacan, México.


Record Description

Usually separate registers were maintained for baptisms, marriages, and deaths. However, in localities with a small population the records of baptisms, marriages, and burials were recorded in the same register. Confirmations were usually recorded with the baptismal registers, but can also be found with deaths or marriages. Generally, entries were created in chronological order. Early registers may have some ecclesiastical documents written in Latin.

Catholic Church parish records cover 95 to 100% of a city’s population. This collection only includes the parish records that were centralized into the diocesan archive.  For a list of records by localities and dates currently published in this collection, select the Browse.

This collection of Catholic Church records for the State of Michoacan covers the years 1579-1992. 

Mexican Catholic Church parish registers were created to record baptisms, confirmations, marriages, and burials occurring in the parish.

Catholic Church parish records are a reliable source for doing Mexican genealogical research.
