I am afraid there won't be any vital records that early. Regarding a christening, one would have to know which church.
I'd recommend that you write to the Wyoming County Historian, 26 Linwood Avenue, Suite 1, Warsaw, NY 14569, include a SASE, and inquire if there is a TOTTEN surname folder. The office keeps surname folders and they contain all the correspondence the office has received for each name. If there is some relevant correspondence, i.e. Frederick (do you know his parents, etc), then ask how much it would cost to obtain photocopies.
Was the family in the area very long? Did they own land? If so, deed records could be checked, but that is out of the historian's realm...you would have to hire someone to go to the court house or go yourself. Perhaps there is a list of researchers at the historian's office or on the Wyoming County website...I don't know.
I checked the index to Beer's History of Wyoming County, 1880, and the Totten name is not listed, nor in the index of Andrew Young's History of Warsaw, 1869.
Also, go to rootsweb message boards and post your query under the surname Totten. Getting the word out is your best resource with hopes some distant cousin has a family Bible or knew where the family worshiped, etc.

Wyoming County, NY HELP---I am interested in the birth or christening record
for Frederick (G or C) Totten, B. 25 Jun 1834 in Wyoming Co, NY.
Unfortunately, I do not know the town. Since early births were recorded on
the town level, how would one go about finding the birth/christening

I am trying to find the parentage of Alfred W. Hoyt. His Mother's name was Mary, and when she died in 1903 in Auburn her surname was Bishop. Alfred married Amelia Norton, d. of Elijah J.Norton and Lucinda Webster. They lived in Warsaw when Alfred went to the Civil War.

hosting, "Using Genetic Genealogy to Explore Your Ancestry" presented
by Dr. Blaine Bettinger. Dr Bettinger will show us how to combine traditional
genealogical research with the new DNA technologies. Discover which DNA test to
take, what you can learn from the tests and what the results mean. Join us on
Saturday May 19th at 10:00 AM at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 1080 Main St.,
Buffalo, NY. (Church parking lots available). Coffee, tea and a light dessert
