"And seeing him, they wondered. And his mother said to him: Son, why hast thou done so to us? And he said to them: How is it that you sought me? did you not know that I must be about my father's business." Luke 2:48 - 49 ( Douay-Rheims)

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
