America, particularly in the Pfarrbeschreibungen (parish descriptions) that
are preserved for all vicarages for 1833, 1864, and 1914.

The Catholic Church's archive at the diocese of Regensburg contains only a
few specific records related to the United States and Canada, including the
holdings of the Dominikanerinnenkloster Heiligkreuz (Dominican Cloister of
the Holy Cross) in Regensburg, 1853-96, with references to its subsidiary in
Williamsburg, Va. (Sign.: BZAR, Kl 114, Nr. 31), and records regarding
