Brethren Genealogical Libraries

Welcome to the Church of the Brethren Network of Genealogy & History resources. Perhaps you are like many people, desiring to know more about themselves by getting to know their ancestors. We hope that our resources will offer you a place to start. Review our lists, individual contributions, or surf to other genealogical and historical web sites. You may just find that long lost ancestral link to your family tree. Our genealogy section is divided into five documents: Church Records, Miscellaneous Lists, other genealogical Web Sites, Libraries, and Photographs having genealogical archives. Each section offers a very different resource for locating your ancestors, heritage, ethnic culture, and historical traditions. You may also wish to review Brethren Groups in order to distinguish the many sub-groups using the word Brethren in their denominational title. Thanks for stopping by. We hope you enjoy our resources, and perhaps today you will find that elusive ancestral link!



Libraries & Historical Societies

In some libraries, after a title is found in the online card catalog, photocopies of the index pages with the names you are researching may be requested from the library for a small fee. After the indexes come, then write for the pages from the book concerning your family surnames.
