Church Records

The Catholic Church in Paulstown is where we had an opportunity to view baptismal records of family. When we first arrived, we were not sure if this was the church we needed to visit as there was another church you could see in the distance AND we were arriving in the late afternoon. It was perfect timing that two ladies who were leaving the church offices knew our cousins that we were visiting. Both of the ladies have been friends for years with our cousins. They gave us the information of who and when to see. Amazing!

Before we left we took some time to "tour" the cemetery. There were two headstones that were our distant cousins. We think we know what old is in our country...but until you visit a land with history, you become aware of how young our nation really is!
