Baptisms, 18691986, St. John United Church of Christ, Smithton, Illinois

G Go

People shown in this index appear as the baptized (bpt), the parent (p) or the sponsor (s). A woman's maiden name, if given, appears in (parentheses). Each entry is followed by the page number in the original book, Church Records of St. John's United Church of Christ, Smithton, Illinois, 18701986. The early records were translated from German in to English by Martha Mae Schmidt for publication by the St. Clair County Genealogical Society.

Orders
In addition to Baptisms, the book contains Confirmands, Marriages, and Deaths for the same period. Death records very often specify the birth place and biographical information, valuable data difficult to find elsewhere. A child's birthdate appears in Confirmands through 1942, and Baptisms (nearly 100%). This is significant because vital records registration at the county level only began in late 1877 but didn't reach 90% compliance until 1916 when a penalty was added to the law for not registering. As with most small town congregations, families are often interrelated. A genealogical clue lacking for one member might be found in that of a relative!
