Hi
Does anyone know where Zacatecas Sagrario baptisms of the 1700's are? I looked in the usual place in familysearch but they are not there (Zacatecas, Zacatecas, Sagrario)There is a gap from 1678 to 1840.

Regards
Denise

Hi

In the book Silver Mining in Colonial Mexico: Zacatecas 1546-1700 (Peter John Bakewell, 1971, p. 64) i just read the following:
"Parrish registers for the period under examination seem to have disappeared altogether, apart from one mutilated register of births, confirmations and marriages..." If that period extended into the1700's it would explain why I cannot find them...

Regards
Denise
