This publication indexes more than 25,000 baptisms that occurred in 32 churches in Cincinnati, Ohio, before 1860. Several German churches are listed among those indexed; however, no Catholic churches are included. The entries are arranged alphabetically by surname and include the date of baptism, the names of the parents, and the source of the record. This index was prepared from microfilm of baptismal records as found on LDS microfilm and at the main branch of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. In order to locate these records easily, microfilm numbers are provided.
