English Church Denominations 

and their Records


By Jacob Eubanks


Church records contain facts about our ancestors that cannot easily be found elsewhere. The availability of church records is greatly impacted by history and practice. Anglo church history has a complicated past - rife with suppression, persecution, and denominationalism.  During the presentation, participants will learn about the formation of English denominations and be engaged in a discussion of the key differences in practice between High and Low Churches and how that impacts church records 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 and will explore sources for research of denominations including the Anglicans (Episcopalian), Congregationalists, Presbyterians, Quakers, Baptists, and Methodists
