So last night before calling it a night, I saw that more records have become available online for Puerto Rico. This is a great thing as many people from the Caribbean have taken on wanting to know their ancestry. We no longer live in the world of now but in a world of wanting to know how we got here.
The collections contains cemetery records from 1900 to 1910 and then records from 1942 to 1990. The 1900 to 1910 will be a great source of information as many Puerto Ricans died during that 10 year period after Hurricane San Ciriaco in 1899 made landfall in Guayama, which is southwest of Caguas and cut across the island leaving destruction and death behind.
