Baptisms 1901 - 1906
Marriages 1901 - 1931
Burials 1901 - 1956

 
This church is in the Diocese of Belleville of Southern Illinois and it dates from 1901.
More current information about this church can be found here:
http://www.diobelle.org/parishes/parish093.aspx
It is obvious from the majority of the names recorded here that this church has a
strong Polish and Slavic foundation. This is also true of the St. Michael Catholic Church in Radom, Washington County, IL which has an earlier beginning. A published history for Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church could not be found but St. Michael's history can be found here:
http://home.catholicweb.com/stmichaelradom/index.cfm/about . The only clue about Perpetual Help that was discovered was in the burial records which indicates that Martin Gryna was a founder.
In searching for information the following web site was discovered which is indexing marriages from the Posen/Poznan area of Poland:
http://bindweed.man.poznan.pl/posen/project.php
In it the owner, Mr. Lukasz Bielecki, explains the problem of regional boundaries and trouble finding parishes, etc. This is a free searchable site and may help you find ancestors from Poland / Prussia. This is Mr. Bielecki's web site:
http://www.man.poznan.pl/~bielecki
Those who died in Missouri may have their death certificate digitized on the Missouri Secretary of State web site:
http://www.sos.mo.gov/archives/resources/deathcertificates/
This is also a free searchable site with Pre and Post 1910 sections. The Pre-1910 section does not contain digitized death certificates.
 
All of these church records are available in the Belleville Public and the St. Louis County (main branch) libraries on microfilm. They are available in clearer form online in digital format at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) Family Search site:

Scroll down to Illinois, Archdiocese of Belleville and select Washington County and this church. Then you will have to register if you haven’t already. Once you have registered you must sign in by clicking the “sign in” box at the upper right hand corner. It is free to register and your name will appear in the upper right hand corner when you have signed in correctly. There have been some problems with some browsers not being able to properly display these records. If you experience problems viewing the images, see the LDS Beta site help section. Please be aware that the transcription was done in good faith from the digital images but due to this transcriber’s unfamiliarity with Polish spelling, expect errors and check the images for verification. The practice of last name female endings of "ska" and male endings of "ski" continued throughout the records. Last names were kept as-is but first names were changed from their Latin form to either a Polish form or English form.
In some of the records it is obvious that the priest recorded the event from another source as the events are out of sequence. For this reason when looking for an image it may be necessary to browse one page before or after a suspected date.
 
Thank you to Frankie Heinzmann from the ILGenWeb Clinton County website for making these records searchable by multiple columns.
