Introduction | Agency History | Order of Microfilming

 Introduction

The records of Mother of Sorrows Catholic Church, 1929 - 2002, were transferred for microfilming to the Center for Archival Collections, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio 43403, in June 2002, with the cooperation of Father Jeff Nordhaus of Mother of Sorrows Catholic Church.

The collection consists of baptisms*, first communions, confirmations, marriages* and deaths. 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 June 2002.

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

 Agency History

The parish of Mother of Sorrows in Put-In-Bay began as a Station of Kelley's Island in 1865. They built their first church in 1875. With the completion of the church building the status of the parish changed from a Station to a Mission.

In 1919 a site was purchased for a new church, but the parish did not begin work on the structure until November of 1927. The building was completed in July of 1929.
