Description

Record of baptisms, burials and marriages performed by Gloria Dei from 1750 to 1789. Entries are not in strict order, and page numbering starts over several times. Records look to be batched by the pastor performing the ceremony as well as by date, and indexes are found throughout, paged in lowercase roman numerals.

Baptismal records are found on images 5-67 (1750-1780) and 191-203 (1780-1788).

Burial records from are found on images 2-4 (1787-1789) and 177-190 (1750-1776).

Although the vast majority of records in this bound volume are baptisms, burials and marriages, images 158 to 168 include accounts of the experiences of several early pastors of Gloria Dei in the 1730s, 1740s and 1750s. These pages include notes from meetings with the congregation and vestry.

Some entries are written in Swedish.
