  • Notes 
    • YORK COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA, 1764-1800:
      STRAYER'S (SALEM) REFORMED CHURCH

      Located in Dover Township in York County, Pennsylvania, Strayer's
      Reformed Church, also called Salem Church, was organized in 1757.
      Both Lutheran and Reformed congregations once met in the building.
      The Lutheran church register dates from 1762, and the Reformed church
      register dates from 1764. The late William J. Hinke originally
      translated the Reformed records from German to English in 1939, and
      his manuscript has been microfilmed by the Genealogical Society of
      Utah. The records in this database span the years 1764-1800 and
      include the names of more than 5,900 individuals. Records for the
      years 1800-1921 will be published in a subsequent Ancestry.com
      database. For researchers of German immigrant ancestors who settled
      in Pennsylvania, this database can provide valuable vital statistics
      not available in other records.
