  Getting the Most from a Christening
Getting the Most from a Christening

For some of our ancestors, church membership and ceremonies were important. And if the church was important to our ancestors, the records of their church membership should be important to our research. This week we take a look at a foreign language baptismal entry and see what it does (and does not) tell us about the child and its family. In this case, avoiding misinterpreting the handwriting is important as well. This article originally appeared on 1 May 2009 and discusses the christening entry for Louisa Trautvetter from the 1880s in Illinois in a German-speaking church.

I write "Casefile Clues" a weekly genealogy newsletter focusing on genealogy research methodology and interpretation. Every week I look at a record or a problem from one of the many families of my children scattered across the US and Europe. "Casefile Clues" does not try to "scoop" the latest news, rather I focus on using and interpreting records. My goal is to give you ideas to help you with your own research. Since 1995, I have written over 600 genealogy columns for both Ancestry and Eastman's Online Newsletter. My new columns for Casfile Clues are distributed only through this site.
