Back to the Parents for the Baby?

When looking for birth records of children, always consider the possibility that the mother may have gone to live with her parents, or other relatives (either by blood or by marriage) to have the child. If civil records of births were being recorded, it would be where the child was actually born.

Children baptized as infants may be taken to a “home church” for that ceremony instead of being baptized where the parents are living at the time of the birth.
