For the faint of heart there is a long and clumsy way to do this without any risk. Print a list of individuals with a mistaken christening and the individual record number. Then some dreary day when you have nothing else to do - go through the list - as I did - and change each one. Many of my early ones in Roots3 were mistakenly entered as christening and exported to UFT.
Yes there definitely is a difference between a christening and a baptism which is the ceremnony performed with water in a church. In England years ago they also had a christening ceremony (party) when the christening cup was presented. Pam Langston
