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.

To search the collection, <br> ⇒Select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page <br> ⇒Select the "District" category <br> ⇒Select the “Municipality” category <br> ⇒Select the “Civil Parish" category <br> ⇒Select the "Parish" category <br> ⇒Select the "Record Type and Years" which takes you to the images.  
  
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.

Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination. Keep in mind:
  
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.  
+
*There may be more than one person in the records with the same name.  
 +
*You may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name.
 +
*Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life.

==== For Help Reading These Records ====
  
*Use the baptism date and place to find the family in census records.  
+
These records are in Portuguese. For help reading the records, see the following wiki articles:
*Use the residence and names of the parents to locate civil and land records.
+
*The father’s occupation can lead you to other types of records such as employment records or military records.
+
*The parents' origin places can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.
+
*Marriage date and place may help find their children.
+
*Burial place may also help you know their migration pattern.
+
  
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.

'''Keep in mind:'''

*The information in church records is usually reliable, but depends upon the reliability of the informant.
+
*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.

Record Description

This collection of Catholic Church parish records from Arrentela and Seixal in the municipality of Setubal covers the period of 1581 to 1910.

These parish records have been preserved relatively well. Some of the older registers appear to have some physical damage; therefore, some data may be difficult to read or some even may be lost. However, in general, they are in good condition for extracting genealogical information. The text of the records is in Portuguese.

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. It is unknown whether this collection is from the parish record or from the diocesan transcript.
