With exception of more recent records that are kept in the individual parishes, all existing baptismal, marriage, and death records for these parishes are stored at the Catholic Diocese Archives in St. Pölten. A digitization project is currently underway throughout the St. Pölten Diocese, which will ultimately result in most non-current parish records being stored at the diocese archives in St. Pölten in both their original and digital formats.
