We just added the port of origin information that was missing in the data from Sept-Dec 1850. If you had previously found an individual corresponding to this period, it may be worthwhile to check the database again. We have also recently transcribed arrivals (and some departures) during Feb 1833, June-Sept 1852, April 1874 & Aug-Sept 1868 (the 1833 records appear to be the oldest published in any Habana newspapers). Check back often - more data is being added frequently.
Please note - due to the increase in data volume, we have now split the database into 6 files. Please use the refresh button in your browser the first time you access the search form to get the latest version.

VISIT TO MADRID
14 Jun 2008 - We just returned from a short visit to Spain to visit family. In Madrid we had the pleasure of meeting Miguel Angel Fernández González and his delightful wife Amelia (both on the right of the photo). Miguel Angel, a cuban born genealogist and distant relative, is currently the Vice President of Hispagen, the main Spanish genealogy organization on the Internet. We exchanged information on the state of documents of genealogical importance in Cuba and efforts that he has undertaken for their preservation. More photos.
6 Jun 2008 - We have received the sad news of the death, last September 2007, of the noted Spanish Genealogist Maria del Milagro Mercedes Llorens y Casani. Mrs. Llorens was a noted genealogical investigator in Spain and author of numerous genealogy books. We extend our deepest sympathy to her family and friends.
8 Aug 2008 - We have completed transcribing the following:
- 3901 names of the employees of the 1919 Census of Cuba
- 1643 names of the employees of the 1899 Census of Cuba.
