Langlade County Church Records Research

Basic Information

Where are the records kept?
Almost all church records are kept at the local church level of organization. If the church merges with another church the records are transferred to the new church. If the church closes without a successor church the records are transferred either to an administrative district or national archive of that church's organization.

How to obtain church genealogy helpful records?
Ask questions and more questions!

  • Does the church still exist?
  • If not, what was the successor church or churches? Or, where is the church record archive?
  • How do you contact the local church or archive officials?
  • What are the church's policies about record research?
  • What language are the records written in?
  • Are there local volunteers to help you from a distance or will you have to come in person?
  • Are the records organized? Are there any indexes?

Legal Rights
As a citizen you have legal rights to see some PUBLIC vital records. However, churches are PRIVATE organizations and you probably do not have any legal rights to see their records. Therefore, it important to be very courteous, understanding and respectful of the policies the church has regarding researching their records.
