Church Records

This searchable database has been compiled from an index to church records in the Wakefield area.  It was an initiative led by Donald McGarry, and Lawrence and Dorothy (Walsh) Cross. The handwritten record books were being called in by the United Church Central Archives and they wanted to retain some sort of record to keep locally. Although it refers to churches in Alcove and Rupert as well as Wakefield, these three towns were a three point charge for most of its existence (meaning one minister for these three churches) ...with the minister's manse, and thus vault, containing the books, in Wakefield.

These records contain names and dates and can be useful as leads. Please try variant spellings – names were sometimes misspelled in the records.
