Church Record Sunday: Locating Church Records by Val D. Greenwood

Many readers may recognize the name Val D. Greenwood. Greenwood's, "The Researcher's Guide to American Genealogy" is one of the books in American genealogy. If you do not have this work, you need to make it a priority to buy a copy.

This week's Church Record Sunday is not a link to an archive, rather it is a link to an article entitled  Locating Church Records by Greenwood. This excerpt from his book includes information on why church records are important, what they can reveal and a list of repositories around the United States with church records. This list of archives alone is a valuable edition to your Internet bookmarks or your research notebook.

This excerpt is just that, the chapter in his book is about 40 pages long and includes discussions of various denominations and the records they produced.
