Trinity Lutheran Church

Grant Township, Ida County, Iowa

Registry of Members

The Personen oder Seelen Register occurs at the very beginning of Book 1 (1876-1898) of the record books for the Trinity Lutheran Church in Grant Township, Ida County, Iowa; a church attended by many residents of northern Crawford County.

The registry contains the name of the person, their father, date and place of birth and time of entry into the county. Some records were incomplete. The birth dates range from 1823 to 1898.

We can only assume the registry is that of members of the church when the record books were first started.

This page begins with some facts about the organization of church and a listing of the pastors after which the registry is given. A more detailed history of the church can be found in the church history folder Blue Folder
