Re: Catholic Baptismal/Birth certificate

Like you, I was adopted and always used only my Catholic baptism certificate (parish record) as proof of my birth. To get a passport a few years ago, I needed a Quebec Birth Certificate.

I got one from the Quebec Vital Statistics office in Montreal. I did not need any details on my biological parents. I provided them with the name of the parish where I was baptised, my birthdate and my (adoptive) parents names. They had a civil record of my birth which they issued on a document titled Birth Certificate. I think the application form is on their website at
Good Luck, Alice
