The Global Christian Leaders Index is a worldwide list and includes the names of those who were leaders of churches between 1051 and 2016.
This index should prove to be incredibly useful with anyone with a member of the cloth in their family tree.
The index is also especially important for genealogical researchers trying to determine which parishes were operational and who served there during this time period.
Begin your search broadly with just a first and last name.
Entries use abbreviations for first names, if you are unable to find your relative on your first search you can try different name variations. For example, if your search is unsuccessful for William try W or Wm, Thos for Thomas and Jas for James.
You can narrow your results if needed by adding a year, place, or additional keyword. By using the additional keyword search field, you can search by last name and other keywords to more effectively narrow your results.
