Argentia RC - description of the Family record


Argentia RC menu


 This record can be displayed from the Baptism record of a child within the family 
 or the Marriage record of the parents.
 
 Family records do not occur within the parish registers. They are built as a means 
 to group people. Children are grouped with their parents to form a Family. The 
 Family record serves as a junction to navigate generations within a family, 
 travelling backward to parents' marriages and/or forward to childrens' baptisms.

 Because the Family records are individually built, they are complete only as far
 as could be determined from the individual Baptism and Marriage records.
 
 [n-nnn-nn]  The reference key of the record displayed.
 
 mar n-nnn-nn  The "marriage" line. Click on the red item to display the marriage
 record for this family. 
    
 The rest of the marriage line contains the year of marriage, prefixed by "@" in the 
 case of a pseudo marriage, and the names of the parents. In the case of a pseudo 
 marriage, the names of the parents are obtained from the children(s) baptisms.
  
 bap n-nnn-nn  A "baptism" line. Click on the red item to display a baptism record
 for a child in this family. 
    
 The rest of a baptism line contains the year of baptism, prefixed by "@" in the case
 of a pseudo baptism, the name of the child, and the names of the parents as they 
 appear in the baptism record. 

 When an indented line appears below a baptism line, it indicates that the child 
 married the named person (more than one line indicates more than one marriage). The 
 marriage can be accessed through the child's baptism.
