Record Search adds more Mexican States to the Catholic Church Records

FamilySearch's Record Search Pilot has just added Baja Sur, Nuevo Leon, Sinaloa and Sonora to the Mexico Catholic Church records. This brings the total number of states and regions contained in the collection to twelve. If you are unaware, Mexico has 32 states.

Those states and regions now included in the collection are the following:
  • Aguascalientes
  • Baja California
  • Baja California Norte
  • Baja California Sur
  • Campeche
  • Chihuahua
  • Coahuila
  • Colima
  • Durango
  • Nuevo Leon
  • Sinaloa
  • Sonora
The records are organized by state or region, then ciudad or pueblo and finally the parroquias (parishes).
