Emanuel Lutheran Church [Washington County, Tennessee] Records, 1982


Emanuel Lutheran Church [Washington County, Tennessee] Records, 1982


Emanuel Lutheran Church [Washington County, Tennessee] Records, held by the Archives of Appalachia at East Tennessee State University, consists of photocopies of lists of communicants, baptisms, confirmants and of those attending catechism. There are also some church minutes, including decisions about financial matters, election of church officials and teaching catechism in English rather than Dutch. Lists of baptisms includes information about the persons' parents and date of birth. Also included with the church records are photocopies of property deeds which seem to have originated in the Washington County Court Records, not in the church records.

The current digital collection was scanned in 2022 from the photocopied surrogates, which were copied from the originals in 1982. The donor retained the originals of the church records. The property deeds seem to have been photocopied from the Washington County Court Records and may not have been part of the original donation.
