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.

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.
