The Chicago Genealogical Society Quarterly has been published since 1969 and the issues are loaded with genealogy gems. One such gem is church records from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of St Paul, Austin (Chicago). The church is located on Menard Avenue at Iowa Street.

A CGS member transcribed and recorded in the quarterly in the 1970s and 1980s church records. Also, included is a historical sketch that was compiled in 1961 for the 75th anniversary of the church.

The Chicago Genealogical Society published four listings:

Marriage Records – 1886-1900 (Vol. 8, No. 3, Spring 1976), information included groom and bride names & addresses, ages, birthdates, licenses number, wedding date, and attendants. A picture of the church appears on this issue’s cover. Picture above.

Birth and Baptismal Records – 1884-1900 (Vol. 16, No. 4, Summer 1984), information included name, birth date, baptismal date, and parents.

Confirmation Classes – 1887-1900 (Vol. 20, No. 4, Summer 1988), information included child, father, birthdate, and baptized.

Death Book 1 – 1886-1901 (Vol. 21, No. 1, Fall 1988), information included name, date of death, date buried, age, and survivors.

These issues are available through CARLI (Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois) Digital Collections site.
