Baptism Records, North Second St

Baptism Records, 1837-1871, North Second St. Methodist Episcopal Church, Troy, NY

 

 

These records were computerized by Rebecca Rector from the originals at the Rensselaer Co. Historical Society. There are two tables – one for children and teens, the other for adults, both arranged alphabetically. The originals were chronological. Sometimes the age of the person was not stated. Witnesses were given in some years; addresses were given in a few years; methods of baptism were also given in a few years.
