New York Baptist Church Records at the Samuel Colgate Historical Library

New York Baptist Church Records at the Samuel Colgate Historical Library

More than 500 volumes of original records of churches, associations, and state bodies have been placed in the American Baptist – Samuel Colgate Historical Library. These records were placed there voluntarily. Baptist polity does not have any mechanism to require a local congregation to deposit its records at this site or at any site. As a result, the records of many Baptist churches over the years have been lost. The original records deposited there are arranged alphabetically by state. Records of state bodies are placed first, then associational records. Local church records are placed next, alphabetically by city or town and name of church. The few international records which they hold are found at the end of this inventory. Their holdings include microfilmed and photo duplicated copies as well. This list is current as of 2015.

These records are not available online. In order to access them you must visit the Samuel Colgate Historical Library!
