The Archives of Cuba/Los archivos de Cuba is the first—and only—comprehensive guide to the archival holdings and manuscript collections located in various depositories throughout the fourteen provinces of Cuba. The guide locates and identifies with local addresses all manuscript collections, archival records, and unpublished and rarely published materials located in Cuba that are open for research. Sites listed include the Archivo Nacional, the Biblioteca Nacional José Martí, provincial archives, municipal archives and museums, parish archives, cemetery archives, and many others. The collections hold a vast assortment of research materials from the sixteenth through the twentieth centuries. Records encompass family papers, government documents, parish collections, notary records, corporate papers, the archives of private associations, personal collections, and much more. The guide also provides a general descriptive inventory of each archival holding and manuscript collection. It is an indispensable reference tool for anyone conducting research on any aspect of Cuban history or culture.
