Baptism

Within parish records, you will usually discover the christening date of a child along with the names of the parents, sponsors or witnesses who may very well be relatives.  Sometimes the date and place of birth is also given.  For birth dates pre-1920, consult parish records as there is little or no birth information elsewhere.  Currently at the PANB, birth certificates are available from 1888 to 1914 but the data set is not complete.
