Genealogy Research Request Guidelines

At Resurrection Parish we have records from the six former parishes of Cambria City that came together to form Resurrection Parish. Those original parishes each had their own heritage: Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, German; Saint Casimir, Polish; Saint Columba, Irish; Saint Emerich, Hungarian; Saint Rochus, Croatian; and Saint Stephen, Slovak. Unfortunately, many of these records have been damaged or destroyed in the floods of 1889, 1936, and 1977, while others were destroyed in fires.

When working on genealogical research, please keep in mind that Church records are kept according to the dates of peoples’ sacraments or other significant occasions. We have records for Baptism, First Communion, Confirmation, Marriage, and Death. Without a close approximate date of a sacrament or death, it's difficult to find documents. Please note: School records are not accessible to the public.

Our books are very old, fragile, and often difficult to read. Therefore, only staff are permitted to access the books for information. While we do not have electronic records available at this time, our staff can take and send photographs of the records electronically.
