Children were generally baptized within a few days of birth. Baptismal records usually give the following information:

  • infant’s place and date of baptism
  • name and status of legitimacy
  • parents’, godparents’, and sometimes grandparents’ names.
  • You may also find the child’s birthday
    • racial distinction
    • family’s place of residence or birthplace of parents
    • If a child died within a few days of baptism, or if a child grew up and married, this information has sometimes been added as a note.
