Hi Jan

The Bristol town clerk is much more cooperative. You can find the
address and details at http://www.dph.state.ct.us/OPPE/hpvital.htm. I
had my grandparent's marriage certificate within 2 weeks. They were
married by the founding pastor Rev Duessel on January 1, 1903. The
church has a web site http://www.ilcs.org/. It has a bit of the church
history. My grandparents lived in Bristol 1901-1905.

Hi Mike,  I have had 'some' contact with the Pastor of Immanuel Lutheran
Church.  My mother was born in Bristal and the family went to Immanuel.
Adam and Anna Betcher - children Betty, Otto and Emma.  

I had inquired about getting copies of their baptism certificates and My
grandparent's marriage certificate and I never heard back from them.

I also was on another emailing list where I had a discussion about this
with someone who said that the secretary told them she was far to busy
to do any lookups.  Then there was supposed to be a member of the church
who did lookups, but I believe that gentleman passed.  Someone else told
me that all the older records, for me it would be the early 1900's -
were locked away in a vault, either in the church or in a bank vault, I
guess like a lock box.

BUT, if you can get some information, I surely would be interested in
getting these records of my family, too.
