Church Records

Note: Records for living persons not put online

 

Some of these records do not accurately show the name of the church where the baptism took place - I'm not an expert on the history of these local churches, but it's my understanding that Prairie Queen Lutheran (organized 1884) and Nunda Lutheran (organized 1920) merged to form Grace Lutheran.  The merger may have also included Lake Park and Bethel (Rutland) Lutheran Churches, and as I understand it, the records are all under First Lutheran Church in Brookings.  Additional information or clarification is always welcome!
