On Genealogy: Don`t overlook value of religious records

Religion is an important part of many of our lives. The same is true for our ancestors. Knowing about their religious membership and finding church records can lead to a better understanding of our ancestors and the choices they made that affected their lives and the lives of their descendants.

The types of religious records that might be found are: Baptisms or births, confirmations, marriages, deaths or burials, membership (membership lists, parish census, convert lists, new member records), disciplinary action records, transfer or removal records, clergy related records, and business records (financial records and records for organizations within the church). for more click here
