Cristy has collected articles on the history and organization of Congregationalism in Cleveland in the nineteenth century, followed by accounts of each of the twenty-five congregations existing in Cleveland and vicinity. The section on each congregation concludes with a complete list of members.    

The section on each of the twenty-five churches or missions begins with a brief history of its organization, usually with a list of the founding members. Next comes a discussion of the various committees and clubs within each church, with a listing of all officers. When available, there is a photograph of the presiding minister and of the church building itself.

Each of the twenty-five accounts concludes with a complete listing of all the members, as of 1 January 1896. These lists are not just of the head of household, or of the husband and wife. Entire households are included, along with the residential address. As a consequence, these listings constitute a complete census as of 1895 of the Congregational portion of Cleveland's population.

Although the Congregational Church was an outgrowth of New England culture, not all of the churches served only that part of the population that had New England roots. There were Welsh, Polish and Bohemian congregations as well.
