So I am working on a birth certificate from EL Salvador and came across this;
Que a fos. 20 del libro de Asentar....

Does anyone know what the fos. stands for?

Thank you!

folio [folios]
Explanation:
You'll often see "folio" (and also "fojas") pluralised in this context, though I'm not quite sure why.

The translation would be "folio".
