A Catholic Church directory lists church archdiocese officials, dioceses, and parishes. Church directories:

  • List the parishes in each diocese, so you can determine if your ancestor’s village had an established parish. It may also indicate if the village had a chapel but was not yet a parish.
  • Sometimes provide the earliest dates for which the church records of each parish exist.
  • May include historical information about each parish.
  • Usually group parishes by diocese, so you can easily determine all neighboring parishes.
  • Sometimes provide addresses of parishes, the diocese headquarters, and the diocese archives where additional records may be kept.

The Catholic Church directory covering all the archdioceses of Mexico is published about every four years. The Family History Library has the newest edition and several older editions. Church directories are often published by each archdiocese and also by individual dioceses. With the older directories, some information such as a priest’s name or address may be out of date; however, the parish histories are still valid.
