Goshen Genealogy: Church Records

A guide to the genealogical resources in the Local History Collection at the Goshen Public Library.

Church Records

Our Chuch Records Collection includes histories and compilations of records of local churches. Within the records, you can find documentation for family membership to a church (which is helpful in pinpointing times and locations of ancestors' residence), marriages, deaths, births, and baptisms, as well as historical information for the church itself, and the pastors or priests of the church.

Some of our church records go back as far as 1767 and up through the 1960's.
