Researching Catholic records

Postby katebenn » Fri Feb 21, 2020 4:03 pm

Has anyone researched Catholic baptisms successfully? If so how & where do you find them. I've not been successful at Warwick Records Office & they have suggested contacting the RC Cathedral (in Birmingham).
I was wondering if anyone had researched Catholic baptisms anywhere & if so where I could look for baptisms c1827.
Any help will be valuable.

The Warwick Records Office have probably provided you with this info, but just in case:

For information about Catholic registers and their whereabouts contact the Catholic Archivist at Cathedral House, St Chads, Queensway, Birmingham B4 6EU Tel: (0121) 236 2251.

Hi
Some also appear on FMP.
the company has done a deal with Dioceses of Brirmingham .
So worth a quick look there first before a long trip
If you haven't got FMP give me a name and I'll have a look.

Hi,
Thanks for this - we have bitten the bullet & joined FMP & found what we were looking for.
The family were baptised in Coughton RC Chapel between 1825 & 1842. A visit to NT Coughton Court & the 2 churches nearby is a must when the house is open & the weather better.
Thanks again.

Yes, it's possible to just contact the local Catholic structures, I've worked with them in several countries and they're always happy to help people track their ancestors; and unless you're looking at a country that had lots of destruction, violence and displacements such as Poland, they're always very serious about their archives, and are likely to have the document you're looking for.
