Program Description

Event Details


This program will be held in a hybrid format with both virtual and in-person options.

You will learn how to find church records, use them to find your ancestors, and solve programs you may come across in your family tree. Many people forget the value that church records can provide in a person’s search for their family’s history. You may think that the only information available is records on baptism, marriage, and deaths. That may not be the case; church records can provide links to immigration or towns in which the family originated. Church records have been around for centuries, and long before governments made it mandatory to keep records. For the very early recorded town records, churches by their very design and function were the repositories for their parishioner lineage.
