Church Historian: Definition and Meaning

Church historians can provide a valuable resource for genealogical information. It is their responsibility to gather and preserve historical documents and records, and even write a history of their denomination or congregation for archival purposes. Responsibilities may differ for different churches.

Scope of Project

Not to be confused with historians that study churches or religions, this will be the place for your ancestors who acted as church historians for their church. If the need arises, there will be sub-projects added.


  • "Church Historian and Recorders-LDS"
  • Church Historians - Baptist (yet to be created)
  • Church Historians - Methodist (yet to be created)
  • Church Historians - Presbyterian (yet to be created)

Please feel free to create a sub-project and provide a link.
