Comerio Church Records 1832 - 1940

While Puerto Rico is only 100 miles long by 35 miles wide, it contains many municipalities.  Comerio is surrounded by 6 municipalities and sits on the eastern side and centered.  While many of us think of our families that are dealing with the effects of Hurricane Mary, I cannot stop thinking of what our ancestors faced in 1899 and 1928 when two other devastating hurricanes hit the island.  So many deaths and illnesses. I am hoping that with today's technology that we do not lose so many again. In 1899 we lost well over 3,000 loved ones and then we watched as people died from cholera from 1898 to 1910.  A very tragic history to the island.

For those who descend from family that live in this region, there are many church records available.  Once you reach where you can go no further, I recommend that you look to other big regions such as Caguas to locate records.  The church records for Comerio starts in 1832.
