Description and Digitisation of the Documentary Groups Corresponding to City Council Acts from 1820 to 1956, and Decrees from 1779 to 1940 (EAP1205)

Aims and objectives

The reproduction of the series of Acts of Cabildo and Decrees, documents from which emanates the normative framework that has governed the municipality of Tlayacapan, as well as its social political history prior to the founding of Mexico as a nation state, until the beginning of regional industrialisation. Tlayacapan was one of the communities most affected by the past earthquake on 19 September 2017 in the centre of the country. The facilities of the historical archive, which houses the aforementioned acts and decrees, were seriously affected, which highlighted the need to support the most sensitive documentation for the community.
