If you’re interested in the Archives of the Indies I want to recommend an excellent book:

Discovering the Americas: Archives of the Indies.

It’s a recent over-sized volume and gives a great overview of the archive itself and its contents, including pictures of original documents, sketches and drawings and actual samples of materials sent from New Spain and other territories, including samples of silk and other fabrics that look brand new, rather than five hundred years old.

I regret that I never made it to the Archives of the Indies in Seville.

I was a royal scholar at the Instituto de Cooperacion Iberoamericano in the Moncloa in Madrid during the summer of 1986, and enjoyed a wealth of acculturation. Every Friday our art professor took us to the nearby Prado Museum where we spent an entire morning experiencing hundreds of masterpieces.

We went on field trips to Toledo where we visited El Transito Synagogue and many other places of interest.

I also got to go to El Escorial. And the Zarzuela Palace in Madrid. And a magnificent Egyptian Temple relocated piece by piece from Egypt ahead of the rising waters of the Aswan High Dam.

But not the Archives of the Indies:(

Even when my sister and I visited Seville for Expo ’92, we somehow missed the archives.

Hi Joseph,

I am not quite tired of trying to register with the archives, but I would appreciate if someone could let me know what they used for identification in lieu of a passport?

I will try again in the day time sometime.

Thanks,

I used my driver's license number. I imagine that any series of numbers
would work. Passport numbers are not standardized so there is no way of
them verifying that the series of numbers you enter is not a passport
number.

Esther,

I think I used my driver's license number. I did not want to enter my Social Security Number.

Esther,

I used driver's license when I registered. The only problem I had was my phone number. I forgot to use " . " rather than hyphen between the groups of numbers.
