  1. I am researching my family history and wondered if it was possible to research a baptism record for my maternal grandmother, Vincezance Cassinelli (spellings differ). Are the baptism records kept in one place?
    I am not sure which catholic church she was baptised in except that on 1911 census (living then in Newark, Nottinghamshire) she is recorded as being born in Durham, Sunderland. Her birth date is 1st June 1903. Her fathers name was Oresto (Ernest) Cassinelli, her mother’s name was Cristina (nee: Di Folchi). I know this is a long shot. It seems her birth was not registered, as it cannot be found.
    If this is an impossible request please accept my apologies in advance,
    Thanking you

    1. Francesca, I think you will need to contact one of the churches in Sunderland itself (Sunderland was in County Durham, but here at St. Cuthbert’s we don’t have information about the whole county). There are several catholic churches in Sunderland, so I don’t know which one will be able to help, but you may wish to contact sunderland.immaculateheart@rcdhn.org.uk Good luck with finding the information you want!
