Whenever you find a minister associated with your family–be it on a marriage record or a funeral notice–determine with what church he was affiliated. Googling his name may be helpful in this regard, but don’t rely on it 100%. The church may have additional records on your ancestor, particularly if they were married in the church or buried from the church.
