Baptismal, Marriage,
and Church Membership Records

Looking for baptismal, marriage, or church membership records for a church that has closed? If the records may be at the Presbyterian Historical Society, go to their Attestations for Living Individuals page and click on the red "Attestation Request Form" button. You will be asked for information that will help them find the records you are looking for.

If the Presbyterian Historical Society does not have them, contact the Hanover College Library Archives at (812) 866-7181. (for Indiana churches only)

Annual reviews of congregations' minutes, rolls and registers are required by the Book of Order and are conducted by the Stated Clerk. The Session Records Review Checklist is located above.
