Church Record Sunday: Protestant Episcopal Almanac and Parochial List

Today's resource is found on Google Books. First, let me just say if you are not using Google Books, you are not finding some of the greatest resources for your genealogy.

The Protestant Episcopal Almanac and Parochial List for 1898 provides the researcher with information about the location of churches, ministers, and church leadership for the United States and other parts of the world.  There are also other great materials from the era in here including advertisements geared towards church leadership like manufacturers of stained glass, church furniture and then non-church related advertisers like banks, life insurance and hotels. Information about other church sponsored activities like schools are listed.

This is quite a large almanac so I would recommend checking out the table of contents found on pages 2 and 4 to find the locality you are interested in.  There is also an index of advertisers found on page 6.
