does anyone know if there is a centralised register of children baptised into the Roman Catholic Church - for example do Priests have to make returns to their Bishop - or the Pope even - of how many baptisms they have done. I have been told that I was baptised RC although when adopted I was brought up in a Baptist family. Have contacted the RC church where this was most likely to have happened - they replied after 12 months and a nudge - to say their records were stored in some other building, and they would check - still awaiting a reply. If there was a central register, it might be quicker and easier. It was in wartime - ww2 - so possibly a bit chaotic.

If a family member from Wales was a mariner during the nineteenth century, then doing a database search at the Welsh Mariners site could be useful. [http://www(.)welshmariners(.)org(.)uk] And it's free!

If you've ever wondered whether or not you had Church of England Clergy in your ancestry, this site could help you find out - http://eagle*cch*kcl*ac*uk:8080/cce/personQuery/index.html

The Genealogist's Internet by Peter Christian 3rd ed 2005 is highly recommended. Like the book previously mentioned it has an internet site which contains links to all sites mentioned. Borrow the book from your local library

If you are looking for a family that may have gone to SOUTH AUSTRALIA try - BIOGRAPHICAL INDEX OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA ( BISA ) SOUTH AUSTRALIANS 1836-1885 Information submitted so may have mistakes but can be very useful Kerri
