Some information in this database may not be immediately clear to the user. Records with one, two or three digit numbers following the name are part of the list of building fund donators. Records with long lists of names with no other information indicate pew holders. In baptismal records, the child's name appears first, followed by birth date, baptism date, parent's names and, on the next, witnesses.
