UConn preserving old Puerto Rico legal records

AP – “The University of Connecticut is preserving about 5,000 fragile court documents from Puerto Rico dating to the 19th century and putting them online for researchers, scholars and genealogists. The double-sided, handwritten documents cover civil disputes over land, slaves and livestock that occurred in the Arecibo court district from 1844 to 1900.”
