The Rochester Churches Indexing Project (RCIP) was begun in 2009 by a group of individual researchers with ties to the Rochester Genealogical Society. The group's research experience led them to an idea which would help genealogy work in the future. It was determined that the convenience of a general index to the many Rochester, New York, area church records would be a tremendous asset.

We welcome your feedback, comments and suggestions on the records. Please read our disclaimer for details on how the index was created. Remember, this is just an index, and should be used as a guide to the primary source.
