It looks like there are some indexes of records, maybe, but not much online. And the family probably isn't Catholic, correct?

I am afraid that I don't know but the Christian [forenames] don't have the ring of a Catholic family.

I didn't think so either, so I don't think those records in Cuba will help much, even if you do find them.
