I was looking at my PEI group and bam, the answer to my brain fog was there! We don’t have paper certificates!! We have registry or record books where everything is written down!! I thought I was losing it because I couldn’t remember how to order a certificate..... that is more of a British thing. We just don’t have them for that time period. And for PEI, where my Scottish ancestors landed, we have unique records like card indexes for every baptism on the island. Phew....thought I was losing it!
