Military records

This page was last updated in 2009

If you’re not sure in which part of the country to start, but are looking for an unusual surname, Segovia’s General Military Archive may be a good place to contact.

It holds records of officers from the 1700s almost up to the present day. They are catalogued by surname, and each officer’s file should state his parents’ names and his exact date and place of birth. So if your ancestor or one of his brothers held officer rank, the file will not only give you insight into his military career, but also tell you where to find his family.
