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.
