I donated a FamilySearch Historical Records collection

The collection I donated to FamilySearch is online! I donated images of my 2x great grandfather Frank S. Rowland's Church register from his 30 years as a Methodist minister. I'm excited that his record keeping can now be a blessing to anyone descended from those listed herein.

Digital images of a church register kept by Frank S. Rowland (1859-1917), Methodist (Episcopal) minister. Reverend Rowland served congregations in Hornellsville, Hartsville, Rochester, Buffalo, and Olean, New York; Detroit, Michigan; and Winona, Minnesota. The register contains marriages and burials...

For now, I simply want all of you to know my ancestor has a collection on the website of the largest genealogy organization in the world. It feels like quite an accomplishment. I hope that anyone else out there with a special collection of genealogical value will consider donating theirs as well.

Donating a collection to FamilySearch was not a self-explanatory process, so I plan to explain it in some detail in future post(s).

  1. That's fantastic!

    I have amassed a collection of original church records, cemetery records, masonic lodge records, business records, etc. over the years and it would be great to know how to get them onto FamilySearch.


Thanks for your kind and thoughtful comments.
