Genealogical Research by Diocese

The geographic area of Indiana is in the ecclesiastical province of Indianapolis which includes the Archdiocese of Indianapolis (Indiana) and Dioceses of Evansville, Fort Wayne-South Bend, Gary and Lafayette (Indiana).

Click here for information about Eastern-Rite Catholic Churches in Indiana.

Select the diocese of interest above, or select the county of interest from the county list below. (Or you may enter a church name or town in the "Find in Page" option of your menu bar.)

Please note: The geographic area encompassed by the Dioceses and Parishes may vary slightly from the civil town/county boundaries. Generally, the earlier the era being researched, the more likely the pastors and missionaries served a wider geographic area, so it may be helpful to learn more about the development of the dioceses (see History Notes), check neighboring counties, and research the civil county/state boundaries of the era in question as well. Within the county area, I have tried to place the parishes in order by the reported year of establishment (oldest to newest) rather than by town or alphabetical order. It is hoped this may help in identifying the still existing parishes which were most likely to have been in existence during the time period being researched.

Keep in mind some earlier churches no longer exist, others have been renamed, and new churches have been built. Also, a church may have been in existence for many years prior to its having a resident pastor...In such cases, it is likely that the priests who visited the church (as a mission for instance) entered the sacramental records in books at their own home parishes. Though an effort is being made to include more information concerning such changes, this site is a work in progress. Should you find an error, or have helpful information to add, please contact Ann.

  History of St. Peter's Catholic Church - Franklin County, by David J. Endres.

  St. Philomena Church [est. ca. 1842, closed after 1959]

In 1959, "The Indiana Catholic and Record" reported that St. Philomena's Church was founded about 1842, the first church being built in 1844, and a second church was built in 1870. St. Philomena's was located in Franklin County, and, in 1959, was reported to be a mission of the Catholic Church at Floyd Knobs. However, Alerding's book, A History of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Vincennes, (Indianapolis: Carlon and Hollenbeck. 1883), reports that St. Philomena's was attended by the pastors of St. Mary's of the Rocks from the beginning. Since St. Mary's-of-the-Rocks is much closer, it appears likely that it was, indeed, the parish which would have been the most likely to tend to the congregation at St. Philomena's.
