- Hi Rosemary,
For baptism records you will need to know the faith and the church in which
the person was baptized. Then contact the archives of that church - held by
either the parish or the centralized archives for that religion. It helps to
know the birth date, which you may be able to find on Ancestry in the
California Birth Index, 1905-1995, but Ancestry does not have the baptism
records nor do they have an index of baptism records.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how a person could find a baptism
record of ~60 years ago in California?
It was a query sent to AFHS, and I am no help on this one.
