Introduction | Agency History | Order of Microfilming

The collection consists of baptisms*. 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.)

This register and this collection was prepared by Rachel Diegel in May 2002.
