The civil registration of birth, marriage, and death are great records to research for genealogical data. These records contain important information to continue research for one or more generations. In order to find an entry in these records it is necessary to know the name, place, and year of a vital event in the life of the ancestor being searched.
+
To search the collection you will need to follow this series of links:<br>⇒ Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page<br>⇒ Select the "Provincia" category<br>⇒ Select the "Ciudad o municipio" category<br>⇒ Select the "Parroquia" category<br>⇒ Select the "Tipo de registro y anos" category which takes you to the images<br>
 
 
The municipal censuses are helpful to find enough genealogical data to research an ancestor and extended relatives in other types of records. These records are great if civil or church records are not available, just remember the data is not 100% accurate. To search this census, it is necessary to know the name of the head of household and the name of the municipality where the ancestor lived.
 
  
The military drafts documents are not listed in any specific order, but these are in the year of the draft order. Therefore, if you know the approximate year when your ancestor was at the age of 18 to 20, you may find some information.  
+
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.
