Baptismal Records

This represents the first pages of the German Evangelical Church records in Elmira NY. We hope that we will be able to bring this project to full completion with access to the remaining records. Previously site guests have sent in partial information that they had compiled just on their own families. We are optimistic that we can present the full set of records on this site.

This church was organized in 1874 and the building erected in 1876. It is now used by the Church of Christ.
