Flores


Flores is regarded by some to be the prettiest of the islands and it was named for the beautiful flowers that are everywhere on the island.

Listed here by Freguesia, which is the village or town, are the names of the Churches and the years for which the LDS Church has microfilmed their records. Those films are available at your local Family History Center or the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah 

Also, Azorean Church records are digitized and available online.
