Explore U.S. Church Records : Find Family

by Jacquie Schattner


Church records provide surprising information, not just baptisms, marriages and deaths. They provide clues to much more, including town or origin and immigration information, how active families were in their church, and their financial situation. Church records predate government records, and often provide information on under represented people: women, minorities, immigrants and young children. You will learn how to identify your ancestor's place of worship, access surviving records and solve research problems such as maiden names and overeats birthplaces. Come find out what new and exciting information you may find in church records!
