Roman Catholic Church Records in the Archdiocese of Detroit

Including the Counties of Wayne, Macomb, Monroe, Lapeer, Oakland and St. Clair as
well as the Counties of Lenawee & Washtenaw, which were part of this diocese at the time of publication.

Below is a list of links to the pages found in the work, "Inventory of the Church Archives of Michigan — The Roman Catholic Church — Archdiocese of Detroit." This compilation was part of the Historical Records Survey and published by the Work Projects Administration (W.P.A.) in 1941. The Archdiocese of Detroit, for which this survey covers, contains Wayne, Macomb, Monroe, Lapeer, Lenawee, Oakland, St. Clair and Washtenaw Counties.

Within the work here presented you will find a historical sketch of the Roman Catholic Church in Michigan, background of the record system and its organization, as well as a description of the available records for each of the individual churches that then, or at one time, had been located in present day jurisdiction of the Archdiocese of Detroit, whether defunct, or still in existence as of 1940. Below are the list of pages with a brief description of the page contents where appropriate—Click on the page link to view that particular page.
