Howard County Churches

 

churchesThe Howard County Churches collection is composed of various church records submitted to the Genealogy & Local History Department at the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library in Kokomo, Indiana. Most of the records were borrowed, digitized, and returned, allowing the original records to remain in the owner’s possession.

 

In 2005, Dennis Galbraith with the Genealogical Society of Utah (GSU) set up a private area in the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library for filming, and local churches in our area were invited to bring in their records to be microfilmed by GSU volunteers. Seven churches participated in the Church Records Microfilming Project, and in addition to the microfilm creation, the record images were also stored on DVDs. In 2010, we have begun the process of posting the record images on this site, and we will continue to scan historical church documents for inclusion.

 

Names of churches may change over the years, so we have posted the most basic portion of the name for the researcher. It is our hope that as the church records are added to the site, you can select the basic church name, on the sidebar to the right, to navigate to those records.
