Corvo is the smallest of the islands at only 6.5 km in length. It has only one village and the few hundred inhabitants are mostly related to each other.
Listed here by Freguesia, which is the village or town, are the names of the Churches and the years for which the LDS Church has microfilmed their records. Those films are available at your local Family History Center or the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Also, Azorean Church records are being digitized and made available online. If they are available, they can be found at the following sites: (Links are provided in the table below)
- Centro De Conhecimento Dos Azores (CCA) site (digital copies of the original records). Be sure to note the Council name of the Freguesia
