I’m getting married sometime next year, so I’m trying to gather all the necessary documents together. Long story short, I am missing my baptismal certificate and confirmation certificate. I am in possession of my First Communion certificate.
I was baptized in the U.S., and received First Communion and Confirmation in England. I’ve contacted the church my parents told me I was baptized at (and the church that I’ve always gone to) and they don’t have any record of my baptism. My parents then said that I may have been baptized at a different church. I contacted that church and they don’t have any record of my baptism either. I’ve contacted my Diocese, and they said that only the parishes keep those records. So, I’m now at a loss of what to do.
I have not contacted the church in England that I received First Communion and Confirmation at yet. Is there any chance that they would have a copy of my baptismal certificate (or at least a notation/record/something of where I was baptized)?
In the worst case scenario, that I cannot track down my baptismal certificate (or possibly the Confirmation certificate), what can I do?
Thanks for the help!
