I’m getting married this summer and needed to get my baptismal record from the Parish where I grew up. I called and gave them the information, and the certificate arrived in the mail yesterday. The problem is that it shows the wrong middle name (different from what is on my birth certificate, passport, wedding invitation, etc.)
I talked to my mom, who thinks they must have simply copied it down wrong. (There’s no long forgotten story about the priest not liking my middle name and deciding to use a different one - which I thought might have been an outside possibility :eek: ).
I figure there are two possibilities. Either the name was recorded wrong in the baptismal record at the time I was baptized, or they copied it wrong out of the book when they issued the certificate. I’m wondering what I should do. Should I call the parish and ask them to double-check the registry? Or should I simply give the certificate I have to the priest who is marrying us, and figure he probably won’t notice? (He has the correct name in his records from our marriage prep).
Anyone ever face a similar issue?
