I love parish records. They are so romantic looking - the swirling handwriting and the brittle pages. There's almost nothing more exciting than looking through the real deal.
But while they can be very lovely to browse through - they can be incredibly difficult to search through. Ink often bled through the backside of a page. Bugs ate through portions of pages. And some handwriting is just plain illegible.
Here is what you should look for:
Marriage Place: En la Santa Iglesia Parroqial de Ciudad Jimenez
Marriage Date: a cuatro de Febrero
Name of Groom: Don Jesus Labrado
Name of Bride: La Senorita Petra Chavez
Father of Groom: hijo legitimo de Don Dario Labrado
