I am enjoying these! Thank you.

Hi Manny,

Would you happen to know which film number is the census of Jerez, Zacatecas, Mexico?

Also if there is Valparaiso, Zacatecas, Mexico and Huejuquilla El Alto, Jalisco, Mexico.

Hi Antonio,

I'm sorry, I don't know which roll any of the Jerez padrones would be on. These aren't indexed, you just have to go through each roll. The easiest way is to use the thumbnail viewer, and find the beginning of each padron. Most of them have a title page, or at least a header, announcing which parish it is.

There are several years of padrones, and I'm sure all of the towns you mentioned are included.

Good luck!

Actually I've found that you can find a lot those Nueva Galicia padrones listed in Lymann D. Platt's book, Census Records for Latin America and the Hispanic United States. You can find a copy of it online from Google books for about $10 or something. The book lists the old film numbers, which you can search for in Familysearch under the Catalog search tab. From there it makes it a little easier to look for the specific film instead of searching every single film in the collection. You still need to search manually for the images you're looking for but the multi-image feature helps to see the beginning of the various padrones.

Madera, There does seem to be a good amount of listings of those places in Lymann's book.

Hope this helps,

P.S. It is worth noting that while most of Platt's indexes for the Guadalajara padrones film locations are accurate, there is sometimes the occasional mistake.

I have Lyman's book, I see the film I need, but I don't see all of the city names--I need the 1840 census roll 168807, great The years don't seem to be consecutive. I so wish someone would transcribe all of this!! arrgh! I will put on my perseverance cap now.

Hi Theresa,

Which year and which town/city are you looking for?

Here is roll 168807, which has Padrones 1817-1840:

As far as I can tell, most of these are in chronological order. This roll has padrones from 1817-1840, so 1840 will be near the end of the roll. I recommend leaping to image500, then use the "thumbnail" viewer. The title page of each Padron is viewable, so just "leap" to the next one, until you find the one you're looking for.

Here's Año 1840, Ciudad de Zacatecas, image657:

I Hope that helps!

i have been going thru them today--it's definitely a process!

Hola. ¿Alguno de ustedes tiene ya localizado los padrones de Lagos (Santa María de los Lagos antes de 1829)que no sean los de 1810 y 1874?


Hi. Does anyone has already located the padrones of Lagos? But the ones different form the ones of 1810 and 1874.


here's 1820 for pinos

1820 amatlan

1820 zapotlan

1820 comunion (?)

1820 teul

1820 villanueva

1820 colima

1820 encarnacion

1820 jerez

Thank you for the link it really helped me find it quickly. I am not finding my family there. Since I only show one birth there perhaps they weren't from that town at all. I have many births, marriages, etc in Fresnillo, so I think I'll go to that region. When I look these areas up in Platt's book shows AAG and AGI Guadalajara. These are both archives-does that mean they aren't anywhere on microfilm? Do you have any thoughts/suggestions?
