Church Records

Check out our Google Map of  Buffalo Churches in 1901!

  • Records are listed in A-Z order by name of church & most are in Erie County, NY
  • All records are on microfilm unless indicated by this bookicon.png book icon.

  • New! We added links for a few church records that we have found online

  • Most are Roman Catholic, Episcopal, and Methodist.  Some are in Latin, German, or Polish, or have handwriting that is difficult to read

  • Two microfilm reader-printers and one microfilm reader/scanner/printer are available.  Copies are $.25 per page.  Please bring a USB travel drive if you wish to make scans.

  • The items listed below can be used during regular library hours, Wednesdays through Saturdays, 1-5 pm plus Wednesday evenings, 6-8 pm.  No appointments are necessary.  Please check our admission rates.

  • Library staff are unable to offer microfilm look-ups. Microfilm must be read by you, someone you send in, or a researcher you hire.

  • Most of these microfilms are also available through the Family History Centers (FHC) of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as the LDS or Mormon Church.  They can be requested and used at your local FHC.

  • The online church records that we know about are here:

  • Many thanks to the librarians in the Grosvenor Room at the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library for supplying the dates for most of these films.
