A help guide for accessing the images of parish registers recording the events of baptism, first communion, confirmation (to 1907), marriage (to 1930) or death (to 1956) in the Diocese of Belleville (Illinois), Roman Catholic Church.

To assist the researcher I have broken down the available registers by county and name of parish, including the years covered by those parish records.
