Larger cities may have multiple civil registration districts, and smaller towns may have their own civil registration office, or belong to an office of a nearby town. To determine the political jurisdiction for the town where your ancestors came from please see the '''Spain Gazetteers''' article.
Some ''municipios'' may have civil registration records beginning as early as 1837. These births, marriages, and deaths are normally found in the municipal archive. Some of them have been microfilmed and/or digitized by FamilySearch. The following cities/municipios are available for browsing on [http://beta.familysearch.org http://beta.familysearch.org] see the [https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/show#uri=http://www.familysearch.org/searchapi/search/collection/1594998 Spain Municipal Records] collection. <br>

If the records you need have not been microfilmed you will most likely need to write to the archive where the records are housed. The best way to find out if civil registration records are available in the town you are researching in, and to get the address of the archive is through the Directorio de Archivos in the [http://aer.mcu.es/sgae/index_censo_guia.jsp Censo-guia].
It is possible to order copies of birth, marriage, and death certificates online from Spain through the website of the [http://www.mjusticia.gob.es/cs/Satellite/es/1200666550200/DetalleInicioTramites.html Ministry of Justice (Ministerio de Justicia)]. See [[Order Spain Vital Records Online|Order Spain Vital Records Online]] for complete instructions on how to receive copies of post-1870 civil registration records.
