Welcome to the Puerto Rico Project at Trails To The Past

Welcome

to

Puerto

Rico

Puerto Rico's Capital Building Flag

Welcome to Puerto Rico's website which is hosted by Trails To The Past.

My name is Charlie Vines and I am the host. 

If you find any errors on this site or if you would like to contribute to this project, please contact me.

Although I do host this site, I do not live in this territory; therefore, my ability to assist with any research will be extremely limited.  I will be adding a volunteer page in the future.  This will provide everyone researching this county to help each other.

The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the United States located in the northeastern Caribbean Sea.  Puerto Rico is one of the Greater Antilles Islands which also includes Cuba, Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti) and Jamaica.  Puerto Rico consist of the main island as well as several smaller surrounding islands.  It is the smallest of the four island in land area and third in population.   According to the 2010 United States Census, the population of Puerto Rico  approximately 3.7 million people which is larger than many of the U. S. states.  Its population is comparable to Oklahoma and Oregon.   Puerto Rico's capital is San Juan.

Puerto Rico is divided into 78 municipalities which function as counties.  The first municipality was San Juan in 1521.
