Recovered Boac Church Baptism
Record Taken by U. S. Soldier
During 1900 Occupation
Corporal Henry J Flanagan was with Company L, 29th
Regiment, United States Volunteers in April 1900 and was
one of the soldiers who occupied the Catholic Church in
the town of Boac.    Henry took at least one page from
the church baptismal records as a souvenir. I don't know
if he took more than the one page or if his fellow soldiers
also may have taken similar items from the church.

I was lucky enough to recover this one page and with the
Church's blessing it has been donated to the Marinduque
Museum in Boac.  The museum is one of the branches of
the National Museum of the Philippines    I have made
available here the document for research and enjoyment
