Hi

I think baptisms are a very important genealogical finding as they are religious ceremonies and are probably more important than civil registers of birth as a cert is just registering a birth but a baptism is bringing their child into the church. This is also showing a genuine blood tie between the parents and the child.

They do say that parish registers can be more accurate than civil registers as in those days most people believed in God and feared him.
