Interested in researching church records? Church records are very beneficial from the 1900s going back in time as vital records didn’t exist for many counties in the United States or internationally. Church records are comprised of birth or baptism, marriage, and death records.
This three hour free class will review the different types of the more popular church records available, what religions offer them, and where to access them.
