'''Registros Paroquiais da Igreja Católica de Setúbal, Portugal'''
+
This collection of baptisms, marriages, and deaths for Catholic Church parish records from parishes in Setubal covers the period of 1555-1911.
  
== Record Description  ==
+
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. These records are written in [[Portuguese Genealogical Word List|Portuguese]].
  
This collection of Catholic Church parish records from Arrentela and Seixal in the municipality of Setubal covers the period of 1581 to 1910.  
+
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.  
  
The records included in this collection are those of baptisms, marriages, and deaths from the parishes of Nossa Senhora da Consolação (a patrimony building) in the city of Arrentela in Seixal, Setubal, Portugal and Nossa Senhora da Conceição in the city of Seixal in Seixal, Setubal, Portugal.  
+
These Catholic Church parish registers were created to record the church sacraments of baptism and matrimony and to record the deaths and burials. Other actions taken by the authorized priest in his area of jurisdiction, such as dedication of a church, may also be recorded.

What is in the Collection?

This collection of baptisms, marriages, and deaths for Catholic Church parish records from parishes in Setubal covers the period of 1555-1911.

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. These records are written 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.

These Catholic Church parish registers were created to record the church sacraments of baptism and matrimony and to record the deaths and burials. Other actions taken by the authorized priest in his area of jurisdiction, such as dedication of a church, may also be recorded.

Catholic Church parish records are a reliable source for doing genealogical research in Setubal, Portugal, before 1911 when the civil registration was implemented. For records after 1911, it is suggested that you research both the civil registry and the church records to verify information.
