Does anyone know of a good source for American marriages in the Panama Canal Zone in 1917?

Sarah May Gaynor-American citz. married Leo Alfred Quinn-British citz.about April 1917.  Both Roman Catholic.  They lived in Cristobal and most likely married in an American run Catholic church.

Also looking for the birth or baptismal record of their first child Leo John Quinn born 1/28/1918 in Cristobal(?), Panama Canal Zone.

Thanks,

Pat

FamilySearch: https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list

Enter Panama in the Collection Filter at top left.

https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/results?count=20&placeId=399&query=%2Bplace%3APanama

The 2nd link points to their catalogue of what is available at the FHL or what can be borrowed as film or fiche.

Thank you for your help Rosemary.  Unfortunately, church records for the city of Cristobal don't seem to be part of that collection.  The closest city I could find was Colon which was, literally, just across the tracks from Cristobal.  Couldn't find them in Colon's church records.  But I will browse the other Panama collections that Family Search has.  It's grown considerably since I was there last.  Thanks for the tip.

Pat
