    List of microfilm available for Charlotte County Churches
    provided by Ward H. Oliver:

    Charlotte County Church records are available on microfilm through the Family History Centers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon). A film can be rented for $3.50 for two months; it can be extended if necessary. These records typically contain the session minutes, a church history, baptisms, many death dates, some marriages, lists of pastors, officers, and communicants, etc. Often such items as kinship between members and when they left the church and where they went, all valuable information for the geneaogist.

    Listed are records available of Charlotte County churches, the years covered, and order numbers for the microfilm. Contents vary among the churches.
