Selected Church and Religious Genealogical Resources

This bibliography contains broad, general resources (international, national, or statewide) for locating and using church or religious records. Some general sources on the history of various faiths are also included as background information. All of the books listed below are available in the Genealogy Division unless otherwise stated; microfilm and microfiche materials are all located on the second floor of the Indiana State Library. Items that begin with "p.f." are located in file cabinets within the Genealogy Division. The Genealogy Division collection also contains thousands of church or religious records from specific churches, parishes, counties, towns, etc., which are too numerous to list here, but which may be found by using the online catalog, Evergreen.
