Riverside + Ancestry.com Record Archive

The Riverside Church, in collaboration with Ancestry.com, has digitized a subset of our membership records and made them available online for genealogical research.

The record set is comprised of Member Lists, Marriage Records, and Death Records spanning from 1841 to 1945, including not only Riverside records, but those of its predecessor churches: The Norfolk Street Baptist Church, The Fifth Avenue Baptist Church, and The Park Avenue Baptist Church.

This collection has been thoroughly vetted and adheres to all laws concerning privacy and confidentiality of The Riverside Church’s members and is for research purposes only.

Research appointments are available on most Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Riverside Archives offices on 16T. If members of The Riverside Church who are not registered with Ancestry.com wish to access these and other records from Ancestry’s collection database, please click below to make an appointment.
