Cidra Church Record in Puerto Rico

Cidra, known as "Town of the Eternal Spring", is located in the eastern central region of Puerto Rico. It's location is just north of Cayey; south of ComerĂ­o and Aguas Buenas; east of Aibonito; and west of Caguas. The town was founded in 1809.  Knowing this information is important since you'll need this information as you seek for records older than the existence of the town or church records.

For Cidra, the church was not established until 1818. I highly recommend that pulling up a map to see if other churches existed closer than Caguas if they were establish prior to 1818.  The digitized books contain baptisms, confirmations, marriages, and death records going to 1937. The breakdown of the books are as follows...

Baptisms


Confirmations

 Marriages

Deaths

  1. The link to Book 2 of Deaths is going to marriages. It may need to start at image 1904 instead. I am currently going through this book an image at a time and have found that it actually goes to December 1849 (at image 1952). There are a number of years that are out of sequence and some of these are included starting at image 1952 as well. They are heard to read but it looks like it goes back to the early 1830s.
