Researching Roman Catholic Church Records – Tips & Tricks
7:00 pm
Kolping Center, 10235 West Mill Rd., Cincinnati, OH
The Archdiocese of Cincinnati Roman Catholic sacramental records have recently been released through Findmypast. Transcripts are currently available and record images will be posted in the future. Jeff Herbert will discuss effective use of these records for researching your Hamilton County ancestors. Tips will include how to navigate through the records in Latin, the prevalence of ethnic parishes in the 19th century, and strategies for using information contained in these records to overcome those difficult family research barriers. An example of a Hamilton County Irish family will demonstrate the use of all available resources to successfully trace the family back into their ancestral homeland.
