It is a list of resources that you can use to help you locate your ancestors. Please feel free to let me know in the comments if you know of any other resources that I left out and thus need to be added.

The first Spaniard in what is now Aguascalientes was Pedro Almindez Chirino who arrived towards the end of 1530 or at the beginning of 1531, under the command of  Nuño de Guzman.

As you can see in the above paragraph, records may exist as early as the 1530s. The Catholic church records begin in 1620 and the records for the Archdiocese of Guadalajara start as early as 1605. Also on the digitized archives of Aguascalientes, one can find documents starting in 1598.
