Local Church Records

Local church membership records (including baptism and marriage registers) are not held at GCAH. These records are kept by the local church. If the local church closes or merges with another church then the records should transfer to the new church. If the church closes without a successor the records should transfer to the appropriate Annual Conference Archives. Patrons should contact the Annual Conference Archives directly using The Directory of Annual Conference Archives
