The Archdiocese of Cincinnati Archives is the official repository for the archdiocese and is charged to collect, preserve and make available records of permanent historical value. Through the records, the archives acts as the collective memory of the Catholic Church in the region and promotes the richness of our Catholic heritage.

The archives’ services are available to all archdiocesan administrative offices, pastors and parishes, and to qualified researchers doing scholarly research. Due to the recent move of the archives into a new facility, the archives is open on a limited basis to qualified researchers as we get settled. Please contact the archives if you have any questions.

At this time, we are not able to accept genealogical requests and are not open to those engaged in genealogical studies or family research.
