Online U.S. Catholic Parish Registers 2016 List

One year ago I compiled a list of Roman Catholic parish registers that are available online. As I outlined at the time it was, sadly, a short list. However, it was well received so I'm back with an updated list for 2016. Most of the updates for this year come from the Drouin Collection, along with a couple from the Internet Archive website. New additions are in bold in the table.

Another access method for Roman Catholic parish registers that is sometimes not considered is microfilms from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. Eventually, all of their microfilms will be on Familysearch.org, but until that point is reached they remain a great way to access these records. For example, see the list of registers for 12,000 (yes, 12,000) parishes around the world.

  1. An addendum, for the Archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey, if I may. The digitized films are available to view at your local Family History Center, at no charge, and the images can be printed or saved to your thumb drive. AND many go beyond 1900.

    The images available at the FHC include many churches/parishes which are not indexed or transcribed.
