18th Century Laguna Baptisms, Marriages & Burials online
Click on the photo above to visit the site
Today I was searching the website for a baptism for Jose Laguardo Padilla, the son of Juan Domingo Padilla and Juana Rita Baca. I found it listed in Microfilm # 16826. Since there is no direct link from this page to the actual image, I searched for the microfilm on the website and found this page:

Notice the camera on the left hand corner. Click on that camera, and you will find microfilm # 16826 which includes images of baptisms, marriages and burials for Laguna, New Mexico - 1720s through 1776.

Since the index of this particular database is not yet tied to the images, I suggest browsing through the images until you find the correct image. I usually skip back and forth 10, 20, or 50 images until I get to the correct year, month and day. In order to make it a little bit easier, I've figured out the cut-off points for each type of record:

Baptisms begin on image #13 (1720 - 1776)
Marriages begin on image #103 (1720s - 1776)
Burials begin on image #154 (1727- 1776)

I hope this helps.
