Research – Parish Search

This page collects searchable databases and indexes to assist in locating villages and towns containing the parish church for the area.
An individual rural parish church serves a few to several surrounding villages. Be aware that over time a village could have been reassigned to a different existing parish (or diocese), or it could have been absorbed within the boundaries of a completely new parish (or diocese) resulting from an increase in population, establishment of new villages or other factors.
