Post subject:  Farrell Family Late 1800s

I will be visiting Placentia from Washington State in July. I know very little about my family there but do know that my grandmother, Anastasia Farrell was born there in February 22, 1986 and baptized by M.A. Clancy. Her parents were John Farrell and Alice O'Neil. I believe she had sisters Alice, Mae and Margaget all born in Placentia. Her family left Newfoundland in the early 1900s for Boston.

If the church she was baptized at still exists, I would love to visit it. Can someone help me see if this is possible?

I note in her baptism record on this site her last name is misspelled Ferrell.

Thank you,

Cathleen Farrell Robinson

Sacred Heart Church in Placentia was built in 1886. It is an active parish and the building has undergone some renovations to preserve it.
