Non-Vital Church Records

Church records are more than just baptisms, marriages, and funerals--often these records of these events document vital events in a person's life-birth, marriage, and death.

But there are more. Records of communion, membership, confirmation, etc. may also provide key information. Don't only look "the big three." You may miss quite a bit.

  1. In reading church records from 1860's I found mention of my g x? grandfather. The discussion was his being tossed from the church for drunkeness and swearing. This tied in with his cause of death - accidental fall - less than a year later gives more insight into what may have happened.
