Marriages are listed chronologically starting on page 49; entries include the date of marriage, names of bride and groom, and any other remarks, often including the location of the ceremony and name of the officiant. Funerals are also listed chronologically, beginning on page 97. These records include the date of burial, name of decedent, and other remarks such as location of funeral.

Communions are listed chronologically starting on page 145. Entries include date, name, and other remarks such as where communion was received and who granted it. Additionally, an alphabetical list of communicants appears across several pages at the end of the book. Finally, confirmations are listed chronologically from pages 185 to 212.
