Records of the Congregation of Trinity Reformed/United Church of Christ, Waynesboro, Franklin County, Pennsylvania 1828-2003


This volume contains the church records that were kept by the pastors. Marriage records begin in 1852. Baptism records begin with one baptism recorded in 1828, one in 1832, and by 1833 the records appear to be more complete. Death records begin in September 1862. It is possible that records were kept before these dates, but they are not to be found in the church. The last records found in specific record books end in 1993, with the pastorate of Don Stevenson. The book begins with a list of pastors of the Waynesboro Congregation from 1818-2003. The records are presented in chronological order and the entire work is fully indexed. Marriage records include date of marriage, name of reverend and names of groom and bride. Brides are listed by maiden name in the index. Baptism records give name of reverend, name of child, birth date, baptism date, and names of parents. Death records contain name of recording reverend, name of deceased, date of decease, and remarks. The remarks usually give the persons' age and sometimes the cause of death. Between 1920 and 1945, the deceased's date of birth was often included.
