Las Piedras and Juncos Digitized Church Records

Las Piedras which is located east of Juncos and San Lorenzo in Puerto Rico was founded in 1773.  However the earliest church records that have been filmed began in 1787 and can be located in the Juncos collection.  Juncos, southeast from Gurabo, was later founded later in 1797. I recommend that if researching the area, look at both collections when looking for ancestors.

Both municipalities have churches sounding the same.  Juncos' church was originally known as La Inmaculada Concepción de Nuestra Señora, but today is called La Inmaculada Concepción.  Las Piedras has their church Nuestra Señora de la Concepción.  As you can see, that can be easily confused and explains how Las Piedras church records wound up being a part of Juncos' collection. 

So instead of creating two blog posts, I have combined both collections on one page.  First we start off with Las Piedras. As always, all links will open to a new window from a desktop/laptop computer. The links to the records are the actual words. You must have popup blocker turned off on this website as all pages work the same way.
