Church Records Are More than Baptized, Married, and Buried

Some churches keep records besides the "big three." There may be communion rosters, confirmation lists, registers that summarize information on families that attend the church, lists of members received into the church, lists of members removed from the church, etc. The amount of detail varies among denominations, but make certain you have seen as much as you can.

There may be a situation where the appearance of a name on a roster is just a big of a clue as what is in the church's marriage register.

  1. Also church picture directories which quite often show all the family members at the time the book was put together.
