The Archivo Nacional has debuted a new Web site that the organization says will give Internet viewers access to many more documents.
In addition to some 300 public archives, there also are sections of photographs, historical documents and even a section on the history of lotteries in Costa Rica.
For notaries, there is an entire section with electronic access to information about various transactions. Notaries have to file their protocol books at the archive, so a lot of the information will be current.
The archive is part of the Ministerio de Cultura y Juventud.
