LAMP digitizing 19th-Century Puerto Rican documents

LAMP is providing funding for the digitization of the records of the Arecibo appellate court district or Puerto Rico from 1844 to 1900. Approximately 5,000 very fragile, double-sided handwritten documents - held by the University of Connecticut - that cover civil disputes over land, slaves, and livestock will be digitized and made available to the public. Genealogists, historians, legal researchers, and social scientists interested in learning more about the fabric of life in Puerto Rico during this time will find a wealth of information in these original court documents
