Notes

Most of the holdings of the Archivo de la Diputacion de Teruel [Archive of the Delegation of Teruel] have been conserved after 1938.

Apart from this, four documentary series created in the nineteenth century are preserved. These include:

  • Books of acceptance of abandoned and orphan children beginning in 1812 (The first of these books proceeds from the former “Casa de Misericordia” [Welfare asylum for the poor and sick]. Afterwards books proceed from the Beneficencia which came under the authority of the Delegation as a result of the Provincial Law of the Beneficencia of 1855)
  • Records of acceptance and admission of the Provincial Asylum, from 1849
  • Records of feeding of assisted children, from 1873
  • Historical records of assisted people, from 1888
