St. Stephen's Catholic Church was located in Newport, Kentucky. The building remains, though the name changed to Holy Spirit Parish when it merged with several other local Catholic churches.
The baptismal records give the full name, birth date, and baptismal date for each child baptized in the church. The names of the parents and godparents are also listed. The godparents were sometimes relatives of the child. In the case of immigrant families, the country of origin is often listed, as is the current residence of godparents who do not live in town.
The records were transcribed from microfilm copies of the originals. The microfilm is located at the Kenton County Public Library in Covington, where it may be viewed by the public.
