Parish priests recorded the baptisms, marriages, deaths, and burials; they administered the baptisms, witnessed the marriages and gave nuptial blessings, and administered the other holy sacraments in the jurisdiction of their assigned parish or parishes. All the original parish records were kept in the parish archive under the custody of the pastor. However, a duplicate of these registers was regularly sent to the diocesan archive where the records were centralized and kept at a higher state of preservation.&nbsp;It is unknown whether this collection is from the parish record or from the diocesan transcript.

== How to Use the Record ==

[[Portugal, Diocese of Setubal Catholic Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)#Citation_Example_for_a_Record_Found_in_This_Collection|Suggested citation format for a record in this collection.]]
  
Some records have indexes at the end of the volume. Frequently, these indexes are arranged by the given name of the individual and sometimes use the Latin form of the name. Those volumes without indexes need to be searched chronologically for the individuals sought.
+
== Record Content  ==
  
Begin your search by finding your ancestors in the index. Use the locator information in the index (such as page, entry, or certificate number) to locate your ancestors in the records. Compare the information in the record to what you already know about your ancestor to determine if this is the correct person. You may need to compare the information of more than one person to make this determination. Be aware that, as with any index, transcription errors may occur.
+
'''Baptismal records usually contain the following information:'''
  
When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information about other people listed in the record. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors.
+
*Date and place of baptism
 +
*Child's name and gender
 +
*Child's date and place of birth
 +
*Parents' names and residence
 +
*Father's occupation
 +
*Names of paternal grandparents
 +
*Names of maternal grandparents
 +
*Names of the godparents, their civil status, occupation and residence
  
'''For example:'''  
+
'''Marriage records usually contain the following information:'''  
  
*Use the baptism date and place to find the family in census records.
+
*Date and place of marriage
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate civil and land records.
+
*Names and ages of the bride and groom
*The father’s occupation can lead you to other types of records such as employment records or military records.
+
*Groom's birth date and place of birth
*The parents' origin places can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.
+
*Groom's civil status, occupation and residence
*Marriage date and place may help find their children.
+
*Names of groom's parents
*Burial place may also help you know their migration pattern.
+
*Bride's birth date and place of birth
 +
*Bride's civil status and residence
 +
*Names of bride's parents
 +
*Names of the witnesses, their occupation, civil status and residence
  
It is often helpful to extract the information on all children with the same parents. If the surname is unusual, you may want to compile baptism entries for every person of the same surname and sort them into families based on the names of the parents. Continue to search the baptism records to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives in the same or other generations who were born, married and died in the same place or nearby.
+
'''Death records usually contain the following information:'''
  
'''Keep in mind:'''
+
*Date and place of death
 +
*Name, age and gender of deceased
 +
*Occupation, civil status, residence and origin of deceased
 +
*Spouse's name, if married
 +
*Parents' names if deceased is a minor
 +
*Burial information
  
*The information in church records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.
+
== How to Use the Record  ==
*Earlier records may not contain as much information as the records created after the late 1800s.
+
*There is also some variation in the information given from record to record.
