Church

The Church of the Immaculate Conception was a Catholic parish established originally as a Jesuit mission among the Indians in 1695 that had moved to the current site of Kaskaskia in 1703. It became a full parish in 1719.[1] The parish register is the best available record for genealogical information before the early 1790's and the arrival of a large influx of Americans.  The parish register is available (in French only) in the following sources:
