Amanuensis Monday: 1890 Baptisms and Marriages St. Rose Church, Newtown, CT

Under the category of things I should have done, this 1890 Parish Register for St. Rose Church in Newtown, Connecticut would be at the top of the list. I captured this information many years ago when we were developing the 1890 Census Substitute for Newtown.  The database contained names from the Grand List, School Books, New Electors and Voters lists. But the question remained - how do we find women? The answer: Go to the churches.  I did get to St. Rose one afternoon after work, but that was the extent of my success in visiting all the area churches.

The caveat with this database is that the church register for the most part was in Latin and the handwriting was difficult to read.  If mistakes are found, they are mine alone.  I did try to translate names where I could. 

For those with ancestors in Newtown, Connecticut, the 1890 Census Substitute can be found at:
