CHICAGO-CITY

CATHOLIC

CHURCHES

Click on the church name for the Family History Library Catalog entries.

Most church records have been filmed through 1915.

Some pre-1871 records destroyed by the Fire but many survived.

*** BRAND NEW CHICAGO CATHOLIC PARISH LOCATOR BETA – CLICK HERE ***

 

(*) NOTE: The Family History Library Catalog entry for Assumption on 2434 S California says it’s for the church on 123rd and Parnell. It is a mistake in the catalog. A second Assumption entry in the catalog ALSO says 123rd and Parnell and the text is in Polish starting in 1904 so this must be the correct 123rd and Parnell.

(&) NOTE: The records for these parishes prior to 1871 were destroyed in the Great Chicago Fire.

Note: When trying to find which parish your family attended, keep in mind three factors:

1) The year(s) of the sacraments you are looking for – use this to rule out churches that were not yet built or had already closed;

2) The primary language spoken in the home – non-English-speaking immigrants probably walked past a closer parish to go to an ethnic parish;

3) Where did your family live? You need the East-West and North-South street coordinates (approx) to compare to the coordinates shown below.
