Digitized Barranquitas Church Records for Puerto Rico

Barranquitas is a municipality that was found in 1803, however the island has been hit with plenty of tragedy since the island has been inhabited.  With the many tragedies, it winds up impacting even the churches.  There have been many instances of fires, hurricanes, and floods. With this, many records are gone with them.

For Barranquitas there are limited church records but hopefully it will help in the research.

  1. Thank you for sharing! I was able to find a sibling to my 3rd great grandmother in these records. I found a marriage record for Miguel Melendes Gonzalez from the 1860s. Before this I was unable to track down any other siblings of my 3rd GG Maria Saturnina Melendez Gonzales. Luckily the records shared his parents names so I was able to confirm it. Hoping to find more, especially a brick wall for my 2nd GG Francisco Ortiz. No other Civil Registration documents show his parents names, but I know he is from this area. Thanks again!
