St. Peter Catholic Church (Alvada, Ohio) - MS 895 mf

Introduction | Agency History | Order of Microfilming


The records of St. Peter Catholic Church, 1860 - 2001, were transferred for microfilming to the Center for Archival Collections, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio 43403, in August 2001, with the cooperation of Father Leonard Kistler of St. Peter Catholic Church.

The collection consists of baptisms*, first communions, confirmations, marriages*, deaths and cemetery records. Due to inconsistencies in pagination and transcription of data, researchers are encouraged to refer to all volumes within each series. (See order of microfilming for a detailed list of these records.) Please note, confirmation records for St. Peter Catholic Church after 1981 are found at St. Boniface Catholic Church in New Riegel.

This register and this collection was prepared by Jennifer Golis in September 2001.

*There is a seventy (70) year access restriction on baptism and marriage records. No restrictions apply to the remainder of this collection.

 Agency History

St. Peter Catholic Church began as a Mission of St. Boniface in New Riegel, Ohio in 1857. Between 1857 and 1913 Alvada was called Big Spring Settlement.

The parish built their first church in October, 1858 and their current church in 1881.

Until 1914, St. Peter Catholic Church was a Mission of New Riegel. Between 1914 and 1981, the priest shared by St. Peter and St. Boniface lived in Alvada, making New Riegel a Mission of Alvada. In 1981, the priest moved back to New Riegel and Alvada became a Mission of New Riegel once again.
