If a major change, such as a name or date, was made to a record you purchased, an email has already been sent to you with the correction. Otherwise, if you have purchased a baptism at this church in this period, you should review it to get the new information and see if any other minor changes were made.

This is part of our mission to update our Easington-district baptisms that are missing occupations and abodes. We expect to complete this parish in January.
