Church Record Sunday: Kansas Historical Society Manuscripts

As I learn about new genealogy sources I am amazed at what is available to us today that would have been difficult if not impossible to find 20 plus years ago. Take for instance the availability of online finding aids, guides and catalogs for manuscript collections.

The website for the Kansas Historical Society is one of my favorites. It should be yours too, even if you have absolutely no Kansas ancestors. One reason can be found in their large newspaper collection available on microfilm to anyone through interlibrary loan. They have newspapers from throughout the United States.

For Church Record Sunday, if you do have Kansas ancestors, you may be interested in their manuscript collections which includes church records. Church records available include:

There are other records in this collection to consider including those of the Women's Christian Temperance Union and some religious based schools.
