+
<br>The key genealogical facts found in the index entries are:<br>• Name of principal person(s)<br>• Names for parents for those being baptized<br>• Event date(s)<br>• Event place<br>• Collection title<br>• Microfilm number and inclusive dates on the film

+
== How to Use the Collection ==
+
 
+
<br>Use this file to help you learn more about your ancestors. 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.
+
 
+
When looking for a birth/christening, search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted. The reason for this procedure is that there is no surname in the original records and the indexer often assigned a surname based on the father's surname. Depending on the time and place, this may not be correct.
