Roman Catholics, Records, and Rites of Passage
Each life has rites of passage, ceremonies through which an individual passes before moving on to the next stage in life. Important events within the lives of Catholic ancestors are recorded within sacramental records, and clues to their important milestones and to their life stories can be found within these and other key records of the Church.
