Catholic records are often extremely difficult to track down; thus, they are frequently unused, however the chances of finding Catholic ancestors increase as research extends further back in time. Also, some unique records are kept by some parishes, social service agencies, and institutions that I have not seen described elsewhere. The vast majority of sacramental records (baptisms, marriages, funerals, confirmations, and first communions) for virtually every diocese and archdiocese in the world are kept at the parish level.
