Where can I find church records in Livingston County?

Church records are notoriously difficult to track down, but when you can access them, they can be a genealogical goldmine. Generally, if the church is still active, there is a chance they still hold their old sacramental records (barring destruction through disaster, which is common). Genealogists can contact the church, but keep in mind that not all records are accessible, nor can church staff necessarily do look-ups. 

Some church records have been donated to local repositories like the County Historian's Office. Many registers in our archives have been indexed by name, so check for your ancestor on our Online Records Database. More coming soon!
