Digitzed San Lorenzo Church Records

While there are many records in Caguas going back to the 1700's, that isn't the case for San Lorenzo.  San Lorenzo was founded in 1737 and was initially known as San Miguel de Hato Grande and later people simply called it Hato Grande.  I had previously posted about the 1884 Census that is in excellent condition that can be found on PARES.  Visit the Puerto Rico Genealogy page to find the link and review how to access the census.

So when it comes to San Lorenzo, you'll have to look at Caguas for church records prior to the 1818 records for Nuestra SeƱora de la Mercedes Church.  The good thing about this collection is that duplication of records exists so that if one set of images are not good, try another. For the most part the collections in close to complete minus Book 2 of Slave records missing and the confirmation records which are limited.
