St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church (Toledo, Ohio) - MS 461 mf

Introduction | Order of Microfilming


The records of St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church, Toledo, Ohio, were transferred for microfilming to the Center for Archival Collections on April 10, 1986, with the cooperation of Kathleen Harman. The collection consists of eight volumes of record books, 1858-1986, which contain information on baptisms, marriages, funerals, confirmations, and those taking communion. Additional lists of baptisms, marriages and confirmations dating from 1882-1886 follow the record books. Also included with the collection are two volumes of what appears to be Trustees minutes books dating from 1891-1911; a school attendance register, dating from 1881-1891; and, two printed histories of the church, one written in 1907 and the other in 1932.

A large part of this collection consists of the minutes, membership and financial records of several church women's organizations. Included are the records of the Ladies Aid Society, 1895-1949; the Young Ladies Bible Class, 1910-1926; the Daughters of the Reformation, 1940-1943; and, the Mary-Martha Society, 1926, 1942-1961.

An additional volume and probably the first record book was transferred at a later date from the Lucas County-Toledo Public Library to be added to the microfilm edition of this church collection. The volume dates from 1850-1858 and also includes information from 1884-1886, and includes records of baptisms, marriages and funerals. This record book is located at the beginning of roll number five.

The bulk of the records up until the 1920s are written in German. The collection was prepared for microfilming and finding aid completed by Ann Bowers, Assistant Director, in April 1986.
