Under the leadership of Don Juan José de la Torre in 1815, a group of residents of Morovis began the process to separate Morovis from Manatí. In 1817, the government of Puerto Rico approved the separation, but it was not until 1818 that the requirements were met. In 1822, the mayorship was constructed and in 1823, the new church was built. Population 32,600. [1]

Online Records[edit | edit source]

Church Records[edit | edit source]

Until the church records of this municipality are digitized and published online, write to the local Catholic Church for records prior to 1876. To find the address of the local parish, consult the Catholic Directory. For help with writing your letter or e-mail, use the Letter Writing Guide for Genealogy. If it seems that the priest would prefer to correspond in Spanish, use the Spanish Letter Writing Guide.

Census Records[edit | edit source]

Search the 1910, 1920, 1930, and 1940 census records for information about your Puerto Rican ancestors who were there during that time period. Click here to go to the Puerto Rico Census Page
