I hope I'm doing this right...

I belong to a FB page called Azores Genealogy. This was posted today. I haven't tried it. But I imagine it's the same for Mexico. I belong to, and that gives me access to most church documents (Baptisms, Marriages, Obits), but sometimes it's not enough. I will be trying this, substituting the country and town and church I need in Mexico:

For those of you who may not be familiar with navigating, here are some basic directions to getting you to the Madeira & Porto Santo films. Most, if any, of these films are not indexed on (but you can use ABM for that) so you must search through the films manually.

1. On the Main Page: Sign in or create a free account.
2. On the top Menu go to SEARCH.
3. Then go to CATALOG.
4. In the PLACE search field type MADEIRA or PORTO SANTO (or other country location).
5. Select “Portugal, Madeira (ilha)” or “Portugal, Porto Santo (ilha)” from the dropdown and click SEARCH.
6. Select “Portugal, Madeira (ilha) - Church records (50)” or “Portugal, Porto Santo (ilha) - Church records (1)” from the results.
7. You will see the list of PARISHES available on microfilm. [HINT- Create a shortcut on your browser to this page so that you don’t have to keep going through these steps every time.]
8. Select the PARISH you want.
9. Scroll down the page and see the results of microfilms- If it has camera icon over to the right, it is viewable online-DOUBLE CLICK ON THE CAMERA ICON.
10. All the microfilm frames will then populate- Double click on them to enlarge.
