Teruel is a province of northeast Spain in the southern part of the autonomous community of Aragon. It is bordered by the provinces of Tarragona, Castellón, Valencia (including its exclave Rincón de Ademuz), Cuenca, Guadalajara, and Zaragoza. The provincial capital is the city of Teruel and the province is divided into 236 municipalities.<ref>Wikipedia contributors, "Province of Teruel," ''Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia'', https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Province_of_Teruel (accessed September 16, 2020).</ref>

==Civil Registration==
+
{{#arrayprint:beginningResearch|}}
 
 
*Spanish civil registration records (government birth certificates, marriage certificates, and death certificates) began in 1871.
 
 
 
*Births, marriages, and deaths were recorded by the local '''''Juzgado de la Paz''''', or '''''Oficinia del Registro Civil'''''. The records are still housed in their local municpal archives. In addition,  Spain does have a '''national index or central repository for civil registration'''.<br>
 
 
 
*Some ''municipios'' (towns/cities) may have civil registration records beginning as early as 1837. Some of them have been microfilmed and/or digitized by FamilySearch.<br>
 
 
 
*Larger cities may have multiple civil registration districts, and smaller towns may have their own civil registration office, or belong to an office of a nearby town. To determine the political jurisdiction for the town where your ancestors came from, please see the [[Spain Gazetteers|'''Spain Gazetteers''']] article. <br>
 
 
 
'''Here are several different approaches to obtaining these certificates:'''
 
 
 
===1. Online Civil Registration Records===
 
 
 
Search [https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/list/?ec=region%3AEUROPE&cqs=spain '''FamilySearch Historical Records'''] and the [[Teruel,_Spain_Genealogy#2._Microfilmed_Civil_Registration_Records_in_the_FamilySearch_Catalog|'''FamilySearch Catalog''']] for Teruel to see if there are online civil registration records for this area.  If no records are available, order a certificate from the [[Teruel,_Spain_Genealogy#3._Ordering_Certificates_From_the_Ministerio_de_Justicia|'''Ministerio de Justicia''']] or write to the [[Teruel,_Spain_Genealogy#4._Writing_to_the_Civil_Registry_of_a_Municipality|'''Municipality Civil Registry Office''']].

*'''''Juzgado de la Paz''''' (Court of Peace) or '''''Oficina Registro Civil '''''(Civil Registry Office) should be contacted if the online request for the certificate copy to the Ministerio de Justicia fails.

*'''Write a brief request to the proper office'''. Send the following:
 
**Full name and the sex of the person sought.
 
**Names of the parents, if known.
 
**Approximate date and place of the event.
 
**Your relationship to the person.
 
**Reason for the request (family history, medical, etc.).
 
**Request for a photocopy of the complete original record.
 
**Check or cash for the search fee (usually about $10.00).
 
 
 
'''Write your request in Spanish whenever possible.''' The [https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/img_auth.php/a/aa/LWGSpanish.pdf '''Spanish Letter-writing Guide]''' will help you with organizing your letter and phrasing your requests in Spanish using the translated questions and phrases.
 
 
 
==Catholic Church Records==
 
 
 
*Catholicism's roots extend deep into Spain's history. '''Parish and diocesan records''' created by the Catholic Church in Spain have long been considered some of the richest genealogical records in the world. Ever since the Council of Trent, Catholic parish records have been consistently recorded, '''usually providing three generations in a single baptismal entry. '''
 
 
 
*The vast majority of Spaniards are Catholic, and so almost every Spaniard can be found in the records of the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church was the '''primary record keeper of births, marriages, and deaths, until civil registration started in 1869.'''
 
 
 
*Some church records have been lost or have deteriorated due natural disasters such as fire, flood, and earthquakes. Civil and political strife has also caused record loss, including during time of the Spanish Civil War.
 
 
 
*The Catholic Church has created several different records. The ''most used in genealogical research'' include: baptisms ('''bautizos, bautismos'''), marriages ('''matrimonios'''), and burials ('''entierros, defunciones, fallecimientos'''). Other records include: confirmations ('''confimaciones''') and pre-marriage investigations ('''expedientes matrimoniales, información matrimonial''').
 
 
 
*'''Tip: '''If you are researching after 1869, when Civil Registration started in Spain, both church and civil records should be searched since there may be information in one record that does not appear in the other.
 
 
 
===1. Online Church Records===
 
 
 
Search [https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/list/?ec=region%3AEUROPE&cqs=spain '''FamilySearch Historical Records'''] and the [[Teruel,_Spain_Genealogy#2._Microfilmed_Church_Records_in_the_FamilySearch_Catalog|'''FamilySearch Catalog''']] for Teruel to see if there are online church records for this area.  If no records are available, contact the [[Teruel,_Spain_Genealogy#3._Writing_to_Request_Catholic_Church_Records|'''diocese archives''']].

==== Tips for finding your ancestor in the records ====
 
 
 
Effective use of church records includes the following strategies.
 
 
 
*Search for the '''birth record''' of the relative or ancestor you selected. When you find his birth record, search for the '''births of his brothers and sisters'''.
 
*Then, search for the '''marriage of his parents.''' The marriage record will often help you find the '''birth records of the parents.'''
 
*You can estimate the ages of the parents and determine a birth year to search for their birth records.
 
*Search the '''death registers for all family members.'''
 
*Then '''repeat the process''' for both the father and the mother.
 
*If earlier generations are not in the record, '''search neighboring parishes. '''
