MUNICIPAL ARCHIVES

These hold various types of sources providing information on the Spanish emigrants born in these towns. Of special mention are the population censuses. The data provided refer to the place of residence of absentees from the censuses before 1910 and the later censuses stipulate the legal residence of inhabitants. Some municipal archives also preserve records or lists of emigrants, and occasionally passports, safe-conducts and passes.

The information of the municipal archives can be found in the Censo-Guía de Archivos de España e Iberoamérica (Census-Guide of Archives from Spain and Ibero-America).
