For example, the entire 1930 manuscript census for Mexico is available, as are the manuscript censuses for Puerto Rico for 1910, 1920, 1930 and 1940. For Latino/Latina communities in the U.S. prior to 1940 there is extensive information, including on military service in World War I and World War II. Because of privacy laws, most documents date from 1940 or before.
