I just finished a trip to Puerto Rico on a search for my Carrasquilloroots.
Well it was an experience.We went to Aguas Buenas Demographic Registrar office who didn't have any records before 1930 and the only records she had were some old records that the pages looked like they would fall apart when she turned them.Those books were after 1930. They in turn sent me to the church who had a lady who at 25 to 12noon was ready to go out to lunch for the hour and my presence meant that she would have to stay and search.she went through a file ina file cabinet and went through 5 carrasquillo names andsaid that was all she had.She then turned and picked up her purse and said she was going out and that was it.It was really funny after I went there from California to find info.good thing that all the other towns I went to were not like that so I got a lot of info.When I get my info together I will post it to see if you all can relate.
I thought I would let you know what you might be facing when some of the town records are not yet on the computer. All in all-- the people after they spoke to me for a while, were very friendly and really tried to help.Well-- will keep you posted soon. Grandmarose1@hotmail.com Rose Cordero #2
