Collections in the Archives

Our cataloging records are available online through the Salzmann Library and are fully searchable.

Collections Overview

The mission of the Archiocesan Archives is to collect, preserve, organize and make available for research the permanently valuable records and artifacts of this archdiocese that reflect the work of the Church in Southeastern Wisconsin, its people and institutions.  Our collections include:

  • Administrative records of various Archdiocesan offices
  • Records of merged or closed parishes
  • Pre-1921 sacramental records
  • The historic records of various Catholic individuals and organizations within the Archdiocese
  • Parish histories
  • Historic St. Francis Seminary Records
  • Photographs

Archives Researcher Policy

The Archdiocesan Archives is open to researchers, but due to limited staff you must make an appointment. Our contact information appears to the left or on this page.  Our copy fees are below.

If it is not feasible for you to come to the archives you can request a staff member to do the research on your behalf.  Depending on the nature of your request, we may charge a fee for your research request.  Staff time is very limited and we will agree to do research on a case by case basis.  Our fees are as follows:

$10 per 30 minutes of research
$.10 per page scanned or photocopied
$5 per photographic image scanned.  Photographs present more copyright challenges, so consult an archivist for specific information regarding duplicating photographs.

List of Collections by Subject

The following is a list of collections available to researchers.  Note that it is easier to view this list on a desktop/laptop than a mobile device.  This list is arranged alphabetically into 5 major subject areas: Catholic Organizations and Events, Central Office Records, Parishes and Schools, Persons, and St. Francis Seminary.  Many collections have a link to a finding aid, but if a finding aid does not appear on this page for a particular collection then please contact the archives.  A finding aid is a tool that archives use to describe the materials found within a collection.  The collections at the Archdiocesan Archives are not available digitally; please contact the archives if you would like to view the materials.

Alternatively, advanced searches may be done using the online catalog at St. Francis Seminary's Salzmann Library.   While there is no way to limit your search to our archives, all of our collections will be have a location listed as "Pastoral Center Archives."

Parish and School Records

This list represents the parish collections that are in the Archdiocesan Archives, however no sacramental records are in these collections.  More information about obtaining sacramental records for the purposes of genealogy can be found here.  The vast majority of these collections are of closed parishes, but there may be special circumstances why we have a small collection from a parish that is still open.  Each parish is responsible for maintaining their own parish archives, so if a parish does not appear on this list, please contact them directly.
