Re: Reached a brick wall...... Catholic Diocese Containing Manistee

The three Catholic parishes (St. Joseph, Guardian Angels, St. Mary) are in the Diocese of Gaylord. The local parishes have records that are less than 100 years old. Anything over that are stored in the Diocese archives in some sort of electronic or digitized form. The local parishes do not have time to do a family search. There might be a volunteer who is an interested genealogist and will help you.

I made a request to the Diocese for my Polish Catholic relatives. http://www.dioceseofgaylord.org/inside/archives-44/

The search took them over a year because it was a volunteer who graciously took time out of his/her life to help. It will be quicker if you make an appointment and go to their archives. The cost was free and the records were loaded with information.

The Catholic Church does not dispose of parish records!
