Findmypast is proud to host the Catholic Heritage Archive. A collection of exclusive records from various American dioceses. This collection of Cincinnati sacramental registers has been published in partnership with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. The Archdiocese covers Great Cincinnati and Dayton areas. The diocese started in 1821 with Bishop Edward Fenwick and flourished into a large Archdiocese. By 1850 Cincinnati was the 5th largest city in the United States. Today the city celebrates a rich history of immigrants and pioneers.
