Church and Cemetery Records Indexes
The Easton Area Public Library has over 190 volumes of Northampton County church and cemetery records in its collection. The complete list is available in our online catalog. You can search by church or cemetery name, the municipality where the church or cemetery is located, or by the subjects “Church records and registers” or “Cemeteries” We now have two indexes to these records.
**Indexes are in .pdf format and may take a while to download**
1. WPA Index - 31 volumes of church records were indexed as part of a Works Progress Administration project during the 1930s. In an effort to make this print index available to researchers, we have digitized it and placed it on our web site. With one search you will be able to ascertain if a name appears in these 31 volumes of records.

2. On-line Index - The Library has also begun an indexing project to compile a master index to the church and cemetery records not included in the WPA index. This online index will include the names of those persons who were baptized, married, or buried. This is a work in progress, with more than 50 volumes containing about 120,000 names completed. As more volumes are finished, the index will grow
