Why Church Archives?

When researching a family's history, it can often be useful to look at the records from the church of which they were members. You'll probably start with their local church's records, but you will often find that the church has sent its older records to the archives of the denomination.

We have researched some links to denominational archives, and these are presented at left. Most are located in Indiana and therefore will likely contain primarily Indiana records; however, they may also contain records from other locations.
