Request a record

Archdiocesan parishes record all celebrations of baptism, confirmation, and marriage in their sacramental registers. First communion is occasionally available as well. Open parishes maintain their own registers. If the parish is now closed or merged, contact us for additional assistance or consult the list below. 

List of Parishes Closed and Merged

Availability of sacramental certificates is limited to the participant in the sacrament, and only the participant can request his or her own record. If unsure of the parish please contact us for additional assistance. There is no fee for this type of research. 

The Archdiocese of Cincinnati Archives holds the records of many closed schools, but not all. Please contact us for a list of school records in the Archives.
