    • 1954-1956
    • 1956-1959
    • 1959-1961

Question 3[edit | edit source]

Question 3: Laguna > Biñan > Birth registers > 1914-1921 and 1921-1927 are virtually impossible to correctly match the two birth register pages as a pair, especially when the right or the left side page is missing. What can I do to read the records as a whole two page document?
Answer 3: Since the pages are not numbered, it is not possible to confirm that the left page is paired with the right page
