Our collections include records of historical value created by ELCA synods and disbanded congregations within the eastern portion of ELCA Region 8: Central Pennsylvania (Allegheny Synod, Lower Susquehanna Synod, and Upper Susquehanna Synod), Delaware and most of Maryland (Delaware-Maryland Synod), and the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area (Metropolitan Washington, D.C. Synod). We also house some records from ELCA Region 8 predecessors such as the Central Pennsylvania Synod and the Maryland Synod.

Below is an index of church records in our collections. Researchers who are interested in any of these materials should submit a research inquiry for more information.

Please note that we do not have an index of our synod records available to the public at this time.
