Geneology & History Requests

Because of our long history in the Fishtown, Kensington, & Old Richmond areas we receive frequent requests for information on baptismal records, membership records, wedding records, and funeral records. We receive these for both the Summerfield and the Siloam congregations.

Searching through these paper records by hand can be a time-consuming process, and we are ill-equipped to pay our secretary to handle such requests. Therefore, it is our policy to charge $20/hour, or portion thereof, to fulfill these requests.

Because some records, particularly those from Siloam, are incomplete, we cannot guarantee we will be able to find the information you are looking for. If we cannot find the records you request there will be no charge. Additionally, if the search will take more than one hour we will get your approval before proceeding.

Finally, please note that we are always willing to fulfill proof of baptism or membership transfer requests from other congregations at our own expense.

Thank you for your understanding.
