Religious Ecologies Hits Digitization Milestone

The 1926 Census of Religious Bodies collected more than 232,000 schedules from religious organizations across the United States. The Religious Ecologies team frequently receives requests about which denominations have been uploaded to our website, specifically which denominations have all of their schedules uploaded. As we approach the halfway point of our digitization process, we are pleased to announce that we have uploaded 121 out of the total 213 denominations to our website. These 121 different denominations consist of more than 110,000 schedules and span across dozens of states. Below is a list documenting all 121 completed denominations on our website. We are excited about this milestone and look forward to the second half of the digitization process.
