News from the Puerto Rico project

+23 votes

The Puerto Rican Roots project has seen a flurry of activity this spring. Several new members have joined the project. We have tagged nearly 900 profiles (many are newly created) as having Puerto Rican roots. We are working to find sources for the 96 ancestors that are part of Category: Puerto Rico Unsourced Profiles

Unfortunately over 600 of these ancestors are not yet connected to our global family tree. They are tagged in Category: Puerto Rico Unconnected Profiles. We'd love to have your help connecting these cousins! You're very welcome to join us as a project member - just send a message to me or to co-leader Patrick Barnum. We also ask you to add your own family members with connections to Puerto Rico and tag them with the {{Puerto Rican Roots}} template, or to pick one of the many profiles in the project and add relatives until a connection can be found. Your help will be so appreciated!

Looking really good, Karen and Patrick!!
Thanks for your work Karen and Patrick!
This is wonderful ! I am hoping FamilySearch has some records online so I can help with the Category: Puerto Rico Unconnected Profiles.
Familysearch Has the Civil records for Puerto Rico with images for 1805 - 2001 and of course the US Census from 1910 to 1940. They also have some Catholic Church records, but only for a few municipalities.The Diocese of Ponce is not included and of course it's the one I need because it has all the parishes I need, Ponce, Salinas, Adjuntas, Coamo, and Juana Diaz.
Sounds like I have a lot of work to do!  I'll get started on this project as soon as I can!
Super, Joe !

Looks great Karen and Patrick , great job and of course love the dual language, very important people from different countries can read and understand all about projects or Wikitree in their own language as well .

Good luck with the project !
