Deep into the past

Today I’m off to Montevideo to start looking into church and public records to see if I can find any information on the marriage of my Great Great Grandparents. They were married in Uruguay in 1868 and had their first children in Uruguay before moving to the Falklands in 1868. Apparently there are no complete official records before 1878, but we do know that one of their children did obtain a copy of his birth certificate (or equivalent) somewhere in Montevideo in 1953 so at least records existed at that time.

The search will start at the Cathedral at Plaza Constitucion, from there who knows.
