== What is in This Collection ==
This collection of church records includes baptism, marriage and death records for the parish of María Auxiliadora in the city of Rawson in the Chubut Province of Argentina from 1884 to 1974.
When the city of Rawson was first founded, it was surrounded by agricultural colonies dominated by foreigners, especially Welsh immigrants. The city was built on both banks of the Chubut River, which flooded in 1895 and caused the church to be closed down for 14 months. Due to the shortage of jobs, the parish moved to the city of Trelew in 1973. This decision was unexpected and has since caused much controversy in Rawson.
Due to the shortage of jobs, the parish moved to the city of Trelew in 1973. This decision was unexpected and has since caused much controversy in Rawson.  Earlier registers are handwritten in narrative style, and later records were handwritten on printed forms.  '''General Information About Church Records''' Church records are crucial for genealogical research, since civil authorities did not begin registering vital statistics until after 1886. After this date one should search in both church and civil records as there may be information in one that does not appear in the other. For instance the church records may only list the godparents whereas the civil records may list the grandparents.
Church records are the most important records for genealogical research in Argentina. The vast majority of Argentines were Catholic and were registered in the records of the local parish or diocese which are called registros parroquiales (parish registers). These records include entries for baptisms, marriage information, marriages, deaths, and burials. They can help you trace and link families. Often two and sometimes three generations are indicated in the records. In addition, church records may include church censuses, account books, confirmations, and other church-related records.
In 1886 the civil government began keeping vital records (civil registration). If you are looking for ancestors who came before this time, then the Catholic Church parish registers are the best records available to identify these individuals, since church records were around for hundreds of years prior to civil registration. For civil vital records of births, deaths, and marriages after 1886, see [ Argentina Civil Registration] (Registro Civil).

*Civil registration records are also a good source of genealogical information. See [[Argentina Civil Registration|Argentina Civil Registration]] for further information. You should obtain copies of both church records and civil registration, when possible, since they do not necessarily provide the same information. For example, baptismal registers sometimes provide the names of the fathers of illegitimate children when the civil registration does not
