In Reply to: What are the Aurora documents? by Nancy Gornichec of 1448

Saint Paul's Lutheran Church, founded mar 24 1787, at the German Settlement. Now Called Aurora. In 1957 Karl Gower translated the old German records, birth, baptism, marraige and funerals as well as the church memberships.
This was published as "The Aurora Documents".
If your ancestor was a German Speaking Protestant, you should go first to the Aurora Documents.
