Archives of the Archdiocese of Chicago

St. Mary of the Lake Seminary
Mundelein, IL 60060

The Archdiocese Archives DOES NOT have ONLY records from inactive parishes. I am aware of Sacramental records they have for 3 very active north suburban parishes.

The problem at the Archdiocese Archives is that the archivist (Sylvia @ ext.722) does not seem to know what records are there, and if you are calling long distance (I have never reached her by my phone call) despite what her voice mail message says about calling you right back, it was always over a week before she would return a call, if ever.

Sylvia will send you a form which requires you to provide virtually ALL the info that is on the Sacramental record that you want. For $20, she will research the records and send you a certified copy.

Julia (@ ext. 728) does seem knowledgeable. She has, while I waited on the phone, checked for me on what Sacramental records and dates for particular parishes, that are in their archives. Julia can make an appointment (very limited availability) for you to come in and research the Sacramental records they have.

My suggestions:
1) I would always first call the parish, if still active.
2) I would go to a FHC and check what parish records are available there.
3) As a last resort, try the Archdiocese of Chicago.

Immanuel Community Church Records


The Immanuel Community was organized at March 19, 1854. Dr.H.Wunder was the president, H.W.Rincker his secretary.

The first members were:

Michael Hemmrich,
H. W. Rincker,
Wilh. Rust,
Wilh. Dieckmann,
Wilh. Stünkel,
Wilh. Hallemann,
J. G. Huhn,
J. L. Michel,
Karl and Gottfried Schumacher,
H. Holste,
A. Kreutzburg,
A. Thiele.

The Senior Council was elected: M. Hemmrich and H. W. Rincker.
The board members were W. Rust and W. Dieckmann.

The first step (work) was the discussion on the church´s building.
The contract for the building of the church was offered M. W. Bruns with a price of $1030.00, included the paintings. The St. Paul’s Community gave them some church benches as a gift, the residual benches were produced by Immanuel Community in the same form.

The Lay of Foundation was already at July 17 for the first church building; on September 10 the little community inaugurated happily this first church house. On the same day the first pastor of this community, Mr. G. Schick, was introduced. The ground properties of this community did lay in the 12th street, where today the Jesuite-College exists. At the other side of the 12th street bloomed the most beautiful water roses and the children floated with their selfmade rafts on the water. One church building check in amount of $600.00 was donated and subscribed by the members and exist till now as receipt.
