The contents of the website above are written in Portuguese. Below I have transcribed the information that is pertinent to genealogists. Presently the site has no price information on requesting copies of records. I have written to them asking for that information. It will be added to this page as soon as I get an answer.

According to the information given in the site, you can request certificates of birth, marriage, baptism, death, from roughly 1830 to 1964. The books kept in this Archive are as follows:
