Baptismal Record-Brooklyn, New York

Postby hollyolly7 » 22 Nov 2010, 14:36

I wrote to the St. Xavier's church in Brooklyn about my grandmother's baptismal record quite a few months ago and never heard back. Is this the only way to track down a baptismal record? What else can I do?? I am not able to go in person.

I need it to solve a family mystery--my grandmother was born Anna but always went by Gertrude. I recently had a hunch that it could've been her baptismal name. I plan on applying for citizenship soon (in Italy) and hope that in the case they do ask me about the discrection, I'd be able to provide this record as proof that she's the same person.

Any suggestions are welcome!
Thanks in advance

Is this link for the correct parish? There is an email address and phone number for the rectory. I personally would try phoning.

Rectory phone: 718-638-1880
Rectory email: franxrc@gmail.com (no spaces in email address)
