What is in the Collection?

The Catholic Parish entries are recorded in register books in columns or in paragraphs without columns. Records are organized by county, then by community, and finally by parish within each community. This collection includes records for the dates 1796-2004. Some records for some parishes are available for the following Ohio counties:

Allen
Crawford
Defiance
Erie
Fulton
Hancock
Henry
Huron
Lucas
Ottawa
Paulding
Putnam
Richland
Sandusky
Seneca
Van Wert
Williams
Wood
Wyandot

Some parishes, especially German speaking ones, were served by the same priest and so records appear very similar in the various parishes during the time period when they served. For example: St. Mary, Sandusky, Erie County and St. Sebastian, Bismark, Huron County shared the same priests during their early years.
