Grace Episcopal Church Records

Norway, Herkimer County, New York

Transcribed and Contributed by Paul Pitts

Partial transcription by Paula Pitts of LDS microfilm 448649 which contain church records of Trinity Church in Fairfield, Memorial Church in Middleville, and Grace Church in Norway. It was filmed from a photostat copy which is in the New York State Library, Albany, New York. Handwriting and ink varies and some parts of it are extremely difficult to read. Although care was taken in transcribing the information, mistakes especially in names are a possibility. Spelling has not been changed. You are urged to view the text for yourself. Microfilm may be rented from your nearby Family History Center. Consult or your phone directory for the nearest location. Question marks indicate a word or name I was unable to determine. Brackets [] are added material by the transcriber. Only events that happened in Norway were transcribed.
