I am trying to figure out what Catholic church the family would've gone to in Northumberland so I can find parish records and get my great grandmother's generation vital information including her marriage info to my g grandfather. What I have found is from someone else's research they posted on the LDS family search site. I have not been able to verify any of it yet. My g grandmother's sibling's names and approx ages I learned from a census report I found on the family when they were living in Percy township.
