Finding Brooklyn Church Records

Barbara asked
Where Can I find Brooklyn church records (not Flatbush etc.)
Olive Tree Answer: Dear Barbara - You haven't specified what year(s) or what denomination you want for Brooklyn Church Records.

Ancestry.com has Brooklyn, New York Catholic Church Marriage Records, 1839-1900 online.

Baptisms from 1660-1710 and Marriages from 1660-1696 in the Reformed Dutch Church of Brooklyn exist. Try http://www.germangenealogygroup.com/townmarriage.stm  as they have some miscellaneous Brooklyn records online

Here is a nice little list for you as well at http://www.bklyn-genealogy-info.com/Worship/BklynReformedDutchRecords.html

Many of the Brooklyn Church Records are available in microfilm from Family History Library. See the list at FamilySearch

  1. Hello, I am not sure where to begin...I am trying to find out what church a priest served in during the years of 1950 to 1956 in Brooklyn, New York. He was a young priest a visiting priest from Brazil. My wish is that I can locate the parish he was at and possibly locate one of the many couples he married in the hopes of finding some filming or footage of him performing the ceremony. Any ideas?
