Every family historian and genealogist knows that to build a family tree, you need records. The records indicate who, what, where, when and why an ancestor did something – getting baptized, buying land, going to school, getting married, having a child, and much more. Records allow us to bring our ancestors to life and tell their story.
Galician records can be found online, in libraries, and in archives around the world; you just need to know where to look.
Types of records that are available:
- Metrical or Vital Records (birth/baptisms, marriages, deaths/burials)
- Immigration Records
- Notarial Records
- Census Records
- School Records
- Military Records
- Land Records
