About this collection

The Gesu Collection is a project to publish records from the Gesu Parish and School Collection that may be of interest to genealogists. The Gesu parish community was formed in 1891 from the merging of two other Jesuit parishes in Milwaukee: St. Gall’s (founded 1849) and Holy Name (founded 1875).

The St. Gall's records consists of a two-volume Death Register (1850-1894) and the ten-volume Publication Book (1855-1894). Before the advent of a weekly bulletin, the Publication Book contained the parish's weekly pulpit announcements. The volumes were produced chronologically.

The Holy Name records consist of a one-volume Parish Register (1884-1887) and a two-volume Publication Book (1888-1894).
