With this blog post, I want to let you know a bit about Guadalajara Dispensas and their work on Mexican Church Records. Guadalajara Dispensas is a genealogy blog that focuses on assisting genealogists and family historians in finding marriage dispensations located in the archives of the Catholic Diocese of Guadalajara.
If you do not know what a dispensation is please check out the following article Consanguinity (in Canon Law).
The Catholic Diocese of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico includes parishes in the following states of Jalisco, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes, Nayarit, and Colima, covering most cities. It also includes some cities in the current states of San Luis Potosi, Coahuila, Guanajuato, and Nuevo Leon.
Guadalajara Dispensas And Their Work On Mexican Church Records
Guadalajara Dispensas has taken the task to create a searchable index of these records since the original records have no index and were bound in no chronological, numerical, or alphabetical order. Thus this index will reduce the number of hours a researcher has to spend to find a document.
As you can see the Guadalajara Dispensas Blog is a great resource for anyone with Mexican Ancestry in search of their ancestors in Mexico.
Here is their website address, google+, and Twitter links,
Make sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter!
