=== Introduction ===
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://
