Contents

Title in the Languages of the Records

  • Tschechische Republik, Geburten und Taufen, 1637-1889
  • Please also add the title in Czech here.

Record Description

This index covers events from 1637 through 1889.

This index is an electronic database of information. The entries are primarily from the IGI along with some entries derived from compiled and original records such as:

  • Family Records
  • Church Records
  • Civil Registration

It may also include indexes generated by the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church.

There may be entries that cite a specific source such as the following:

  • "Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850: a Family Register for the People" by James Arnold
  • "Paul Dingwell Genealogical Collection" by Paul Dingwell
  • A county or state vital record registration

These entries are in this collection for one of the following reasons:

  • They were submitted by private individuals to the LDS Church and as such are part of the IGI resulting in their inclusion in this index.
  • They have been indexed through the internet indexing project sponsored by the LDS Church. If this is the case, the index they are a part of has been included as part of this database.

The Vital Record Index databases are not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records although some sub-indexes (an index to a set of records within the database) have been found. When we identify a sub-index, we remove it from the database and post it separately on FamilySearch under its appropriate title.

This index is not complete for any particular place or region

Record Content

The key genealogical facts found in birth or baptism index entries may include:

  • Name of the child
  • Gender
  • Names of the parents
  • Birth date
  • Birthplace
  • Christening date (if the source is a church record)
  • Family History Library Microfilm and item numbers for the source materials

Coverage Table

This collection is a partial index of records for the localities listed below as of April 2010. The table below shows the number of records by locality. Localities not listed may not have any records in this collection.

Most of these records date from the time period indicated in the columns below; however, there may be records before and after these dates. Record counts where the locality information was incomplete are included below under the country name. Because of this, you may wish to search only by country.

As this is an index of records compiled from various sources, it is strongly recommended that you verify the information in original records. Due to privacy laws not all records may be displayed.


Locality Births Marriages
Cechy 974 3,491
Morava 4,126 6,254
Totals 5,100 9,745


How to Use the Record

Use this index to help you learn more about your ancestors. The information could help you identify family relationships and lineages as well as direct you to original records of your ancestors, which may contain additional information.

In baptism records, if a surname is not listed for the child, the indexer often assigns the father’s surname to the child. This surname may not be correct. So if you are looking for a baptism search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.

Finding the Original Source for an Entry in This Collection

Each entry in this index has a source listed which includes a batch number. You will need to trace the batch number for the individual entry to learn its source. Please see the following wiki articles for more information on batch numbers:

If an FHL film number is given in the entry for your ancestor, search for it in the Family History Library Catalog.

Record History

For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. This is an index of some baptisms throughout the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing of this collection to help individuals find information about their ancestors.

Church records and civil registration were official records and are some of the most reliable sources of information available for those who were baptized or married in the Czech Republic and Slovakia
