St. Teresa of the Child Jesus parish in the Diocese of Belleville was formed in 1926 following changes in boundaries of parishes in Belleville. It continues today (2021). The Very Reverend William Hoff, dean, was the first pastor. The School Sisters of Notre Dame were the first teachers in the parish school in 1926. A new church was completed in 1967.
About these records, this database, caveats, citations, further research
About these records, this database, caveats
- The Society and the compiler recommend researchers verify information provided on the SCCGS website with the original record extracted from images are online at FamilySearch. Also, verify the actual place buried with the cemetery sexton’s book, an obituary, funeral card, death certificate, or probate record. Courthouse, IRAD, and library addresses.
- Researchers are urged to correlate information here with that found in other records before forming conclusions about a person, family, or relationship. Further research (scroll down).
- There were no baptism register images to abstract on FamilySearch but some may be on microfilm (see sidebar).
- If the image is unsatisfactory (much ink bled through), request help from the Archives of the Diocese of Belleville at (618) 722-5057.
- Square brackets [ ] indicate wording added by the compiler to clarify an entry.
- Terminology reflects the time period and Roman Catholic Canon Law, both have changed over time.
- Cramped handwriting, faint images, possible transcription errors, and names spelled phonetically or with diacritical marks will undoubtedly affect this compilation. Search tips may help locate an ancestor’s name if misspelled.
- Given names abbreviated in the church book are spelled out when the English equivalent is certain (Elizabeth for Eliz., Louis for Ludovicus). When no apparent equivalent was known or ambiguous, the Latin name or initials were transcribed.
