PEI baptism cards on FamilySearch

This 92,218 item collection Prince Edward Island Baptism Card Index, 1721-1885 from FamilySearch might not be the largest, but in the context of a present PEI population of 140 thousand it's significant. That's also true as the information pre-dates civil registration.

These are indexed transcribed records containing:

  • Name of the child
  • Date of birth
  • Place of birth
  • Date of baptism
  • Father’s name
  • Mother’s name
  • Location of the record, including book number and page number
  • Officiating clergy
