Renfrew County is located in the Ottawa Valley. It was settled about 1820 by farmers and lumber workers using the Ottawa River to transport lumber. Most of the early settlers were of English, Irish, Scottish, and French Canadian origin, not necessarily in that order. Renfrew was incorporated as a village in 1858. Eganville began in 1825 with lumber and grist mills. To encourage settlement in this area, advertisements in Germany resulted in large numbers of German settlers in the 1860ís in the Palmer Rapids area of Raglan Township, Renfrew County.

This Vital Statistics Project consists of transcriptions of baptism, marriage and burial records for early congregations that became members of the United Church of Canada in 1925. The records are held by the United Church Archives (UCA). The transcriptions were done by volunteers from Toronto Branch and Halton-Peel Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS), with this book originally being published by the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society in 2014.

Records have been grouped according to the Fonds [collection] number assigned by the United Church of Canada Archives. These Fonds generally contain the records of early circuits (later called Charges) or churches that merged over the years to become a current United Church today.
