Question about baptism records

Postby stokkster1 » 16 Jan 2016, 01:02

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1 ... cc=2046915

so I have been looking at these, and I wonder, did they sometimes baptise more then one child at the same time? or are all these names the child's fully name? I am wondering if this record would be for Maria & vincenzo Geluso, instead of just Maria Vencenza Geluso? Look at some of the ones above, looks like several children male and female listed, just wondering, because I am having a hard time finding my Vincenzo who should be bapt in this set of records.

each entry is the baptism record of only one child who was given multiple first names at the time of the baptism
