=== Locating Church Directories  ===
    
The Catholic Church directory covering all the archdioceses of Mexico is published about every four years. The Family History Library has the newest edition and several older editions. Church directories are often published by each archdiocese and also by individual dioceses. With the older directories, some information such as a priest’s name or address may be out of date; however, the parish histories are still valid.
