Would like to add a new record type: Puerto Rico Slavery Registry. This record type is fairly unique for Latin America. In 1872, the Spanish government ordered a central registry of all slaves living in Puerto Rico at that time. This data has been indexed and is available in ancestry.com. I created a stub for a wiki page "Puerto Rico slavery registry" but don't feel it belongs with civil registration or with census records. Thanks for your help.

Thank you. I will add a link to your page to the Puerto Rico sidebar and add this collection to the Puerto Rico Online Genealogy Records page, unless it is already there.

I couldn't find a stub. It must be in your sandbox, so I will just create the page user:hanna5974
