I received a tip that a baptism record I could really use to prove a relationship was found by someone else years ago was found in records from the St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Cumberland, MD. Specifically, I'm interested in a baptism record for Henry Isenhart that I'm told is dated 8 Jul 1821.
Does anyone by chance know the best way to try and track either a copy of the original or even a solid transcription down from afar? I'm hours away, and I haven't had much luck finding a source online. I have not yet tried contacting the current church, as I know that sometimes older records have been passed on to historical societies or other groups who can focus on preservation or lookups. I just wanted to ask if anyone here might have any insights on such collections before calling.
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide!
