Subject: [Q-R] Question about baptism dates
Date: Fri, 17 Jul 2009 18:19:30 -0700 (PDT)
I find some of my ancestor's Drouin records state that they were born and baptised on the same day. (the latest batch is in Ste. Felicite in 1850's-1870's)
How exactly did that work back then? Did the priest find out that a baby was born and go to the home? Did the mother actually go to the church on the day she gave birth? Are these dates recorded accurate?
