The Dialog, the newspaper serving Delaware and Maryland Eastern Shore Catholics reported that volunteers working with the Diocesan Archives has placed over 83,000 pre-1900 records of baptisms and marriages online. These volunteers digitized the data of Baptismal and Marriage Registers of the older parishes of the Diocese of Wilmington through the year 1900. The listed records were extracted by a group of volunteers, with support and assistance from the Archives of the Diocese of Wilmington, and are maintained by the volunteers on their project website. In addition a cemetery burial database is available online.
