be very helpful in getting certificate of baptism.
I don’t think you will be able to source a certificate of baptism because this was not a statutory document. I have mine dating from 1960 and it is more like a keepsake card that is signed by the Minister. To my knowledge, there would not be a copy of that document – it would have been handed to your parents. Or the baptism may only be recorded on the reverse side of your original birth certificate. There may be a record of your baptism in the archives of Guthrie Memorial Congregation Church but since I believe that church has been demolished, the records may well have been removed to The Mitchell Library. But that will only show a record of your baptism – there will be no certificate.
