CHURCHES

Catholic Church Records, Alpena, MI (1864 – 1925)

Introduction:  This is a chronological extraction of Catholic Church Records from 1864 to 1925.  St Bernard Church, the only Catholic Church until 1883, contains the earliest extracted baptisms, including godparents, marriages, and burials.  St Anne (French) and St Mary’s Churches (Polish) began in 1883.  Baptisms 100 years or older were allowed to be included, so they only are shown until 1894 for St Bernard and 1896 for St Anne.  St Mary only allowed burials to be extracted.  The original records were mostly in Latin or French.  When possible, the page of the original record is indicated.
