Libro 22 Bautismos de Pardos y Morenos (Book 22 Baptisms of Brown and Black People)

This volume contains the baptismal records for 447 individuals who were baptised in the Espiritu Santo Church in Havana between the years 1799-1800. These individuals are identified by race (black, brown, mixed race, African) and often by African ethnic origin (congo, carabali, mandinga, mina, etc.). They are also listed as legitimate or illegitimate birth and whether their parents are enslaved or free. The designation of an eslaved mother would mean that the offspring was also born into slave status. Some of these baptisms were for adults, which would likely mean they were recently imported from Africa. This volume also contains an index by name of the person baptised.

These books have been in the Church of Espiritu Santo since their creation. They fall under the jurisdiction of the Archibihopric of Havana.

One bound volume.
