Dear List members,
For the past several months we have been doing research, and entering
information on our website about Primitive or Old School Baptist
churches, and their members' surnames, in about twenty of the northern
states across America. We have been working on Pennsylvania and Michigan
lately, but have a long ways to go, as we have not done nearly as much
research on churches in those states as in Illinois and others closer to
us. However, we wish to submit what we have to the genealogy research
public, in hopes of obtaining help, information about the location of
records, and just to be of help wherever we can. We realize our
information will not help a large percentage of genealogists, but since
many of the churches are very old, we may be able to help some in
Pennsylvania or Michigan, as we have in other states. We have a library
of church periodicals with several thousand obituaries in them, and a
database of names of members which now exceeds 30,000 and growing.
The surnames we have given serve as an index to our database which
includes full names, and in some cases we
have obituaries, etc. If you wish to take a look at our whole website,
Or, if you wish to go the Pennsylvania and Michigan page directly,

We welcome you to write in our guestbooks, or to write to us. It may
take us a few days to reply to email.
