In an earlier blog I explained that one could find notes in baptismal registers relating to a subsequent marriage of the child in later life post 1907. This was because of the requirement that a "letter of freedom" was sought from the home parish to state the person had not married before. (R.C.)

Joseph Wade a brother to my Great Grandfather was born in North Co. Dublin in the 1860's. Next to his baptismal entry the details of his marriage are recorded. Joseph married Sabina Jackson at St Francis Xavier Church, St Louis, Missouri, U.S.A. 1908.

Though you may have birth certificates of  your own ancestors it is always wise to check out baptismal registers too. Email me! click here
