Puerto Rico Civil Registration Records - Published Index

It's been a long time coming, but FamilySearch finally published the index to their Puerto Rico civil registration collection (births, marriages and deaths). You can find the collection here: Puerto Rico, Civil Registration, 1805-2001. The collection mainly covers 1885-1950ish, but some the collection has some earlier and later years for some municipalities. More than 4.8 million birth, marriage, and death certificates are now searchable by name. The collection is free to use - happy searching!
