Locating Church Records
Juliana Smith

When the civil registration of a birth, marriage, or death cannot be found or does not exist, where can you turn? A good starting place will be religious records. Most Americans families have been affiliated with at least one religious group, even if they were not consistently practicing. In the not-so-distant past when recording vital events was not required, religious records usually play an important role in providing the information you need.

Be sure to find out what churches were in existence at the time your ancestor lived in the area. If a church for his denomination was not available, he may have attended the closest church he could get to. Immigrants who still hadn't learned English may have attended a church that held services in their native tongue. Click to Continue Article
