Title in the Language of the Record

Registros Parroquiales de la Iglesia Católica del Estado de Nuevo León, México

Collection Time Period

This collection of Catholic Church records from the Diocese of Nuevo Leon covers from 1667 to 1976.

Record History

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.

Why the Record Was Created

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

Record Reliability

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

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.

Record Content
