This Collection will include records from 1630 to 1950.<br>

This index is an electronic index for the years 1630 to 1950. It is not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records. This index is not complete for any particular place or region. This collection may include information previously published in the International Genealogical Index or Vital Records Index collections.  
 
+
This index is an electronic database of information. The entries are primarily from the [[International Genealogical Index|International Genealogical Index]] (IGI), along with some entries derived from compiled and original records, such as:
+
 
+
*Family Records
+
*Church Records
+
*Civil Registration
+
 
+
It may also include indexes generated by the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church.
+
 
+
There may be entries that cite a specific source such as the following:
+
 
+
*"Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850: a Family Register for the People" by James Arnold
+
*"Paul Dingwell Genealogical Collection" by Paul Dingwell
+
*A county or state vital record registration
+
 
+
These entries are in this collection for one of the following reasons:
+
 
+
*They were submitted by private individuals to the LDS Church and as such are part of the IGI resulting in their inclusion in this index.  
+
*They have been indexed through the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church. If this is the case, the index they are a part of has been included as part of this database.
+
 
+
The Vital Record Index databases are not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records although some sub-indexes (an index to a set of records within the database) have been found. When we identify a sub-index, we remove it from the database and post it separately on FamilySearch under its appropriate title.  
+
 
+
This index is not complete for any particular place or region.<br>
+
 
+
For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. This is an index of some baptisms throughout Colombia. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.
+
 
+
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing of this collection to help individuals find information about their ancestors.
+
 
+
Church records and civil registration were official records and are some of the most reliable sources of information available for those who were born, married, or died in Colombia.

The key genealogical facts found in baptism index entries may include:
+
 
+
*Name of the child
+
*Gender
+
*Names of the parents
+
*Birth date

*Birthplace
+
*Christening date (if the source is a church record)

+
== How to Use the Record  ==
+
 
+
The information could help you identify family relationships and lineages as well as direct you to original records of your ancestors, which may contain additional information.
+
 
+
In baptism records, if a surname is not listed for the child, the indexer often assigns the father’s surname to the child. This surname may not be correct. So if you are looking for a birth or christening, search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.

+
=== Finding the Original Source for an Entry in This Collection  ===
+
 
+
Each entry in this index has a source listed which includes a batch number. You will need to trace the batch number for the individual entry to learn its source. Please see the following wiki articles for more information on batch numbers:
