Churches of the County


Contact the individual churches after checking records at the libraries and the museums.  Church records are not public records, they are business records.  However some churches do have volunteers that will assist you with their records, or will look up genealogy related information for you.  Each congregation has their own policies concerning their materials and each has different forms of record keeping
