English Church Denominations 

and their Records


By Jacob Eubanks


Church records contain facts about our ancestors that cannot easily be found elsewhere. However, locating and accessing these records can sometimes be a challenge. The availability of church records is greatly impacted by history and practice.

During the presentation, participants will learn about the formation of English denominations, discuss the key differences practiced between High and Low Churches, and examine the impact church records have in the U.S. and England.

Participants will learn the terminology for and legal measures taken by the English and Colonial government to suppress low churches while exploring sources        for research of denominations including the Anglicans (Episcopalian), Congregationalists, Presbyterians, Quakers, Baptists and Methodists.

Eubanks, MLS, is Assistant Manager of History & Genealogy at the St. Louis County Library.  He is a national genealogical speaker, a regular contributor to PastPorts newsletter, and a former faculty librarian at Indiana State University.
