Do not accept St. Mary's Armenian Apostolic Church (Glendale, California) statements
bearing the legend “Birth Certificate” as evidence for either enumeration or claims
purposes. See C.1. below.
NOTE: These statements, which are unnumbered, are issued to members of the congregation
who were born and baptized in a foreign country. The statement is based solely on
the allegation of the individual. The actual church record from the foreign country
is generally no longer available.
Accept a numbered St. Mary's “Certificate of Baptism.” See C.2. below. St. Mary's
has baptismal records only for individuals baptized at St. Mary's.
