History: The Diocese of Richmond was erected for the state of Virginia, 1820, and lost territory for erecting other dioceses, 1850-1974.

 

Holdings: Records (e.g. correspondence, photography, clippings) in the parish files of St. Peter the Apostle Church, Orley, may contain records about Maya Indian parishioners, 1970s-present. Sacramental records are held by the parish.

 

Unless noted otherwise, the repository named above holds (or held) the records described and not the Marquette University Archives. However, Marquette’s holdings, e.g. Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions Records, include related records about these Native and Catholic groups and places.
