Culebra Church Records 1896 - 1976

Culebra, known as the last Virgin Island, sits off the coast of Puerto Rico to the east.  The island wasn't always inhabited by those from the island but finally in 1880 people began migration to the island. In the past the island had prior inhabitants, including pirates.  Note that Culebra consists of the main island and 23 smaller islands. So it is important to look elsewhere.

When searching for records prior to the records available, look to Vieques and Fajardo as locations to look.  In addition, since it is a remote location, take into account that baptisms can happen years later due to accessibility to the church.  I also refer to Fajardo due to the the port that exists there to transport you to the islands.
