FamilySearch Record Search This article describes a collection of historical records scheduled to become available at FamilySearch.org.

Contents

Title in the Language of the Records

Deutschland, Amberg, Bavaria Archivgut

Record Description

This collection of mixed records from the city archives of Amberg covers the inclusive years of about 1836-1939. Most of the records are handwritten in narrative style and, in later years, in formatted forms. The record text is in German. This collection may include records such as:

  • Wills and estates
  • Land and tenancy records
  • Court records
  • Tax records
  • Funeral sermons and sexton records
  • Voting registers
  • Council meeting protocols
  • Hospital books

Record Content

These records may include:

  • Names of parents, children, witnesses
  • Dates and places of events, ages
  • Residence and religion of principals
  • Occupation of principal person and maybe of other people listed depending on the record
  • Legitimacy

How to Use the Record

In order to find data in this collection, it will be necessary to know at least the name of the ancestor, the place of the event, and an approximate date.

Some records have indexes at the end of the volume. Frequently, these indexes are arranged by the given name of the individual and sometimes use the Latin form of the name. Those volumes without indexes need to be searched chronologically for the individuals sought. When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information about other people listed in the record. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details that can lead you to other records about your ancestors.

For example:

  • Use the birth or baptism date and place to find the family in census records.
  • Use the residence and names of the parents to locate civil and land records.
  • The father’s occupation can lead you to employment records, military records, or other types of records.
  • The parents' places of origin can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.
  • Marriage date and place may help find a couple's children.
  • Burial place may also help you find a couple's migration pattern.

It is often helpful to extract the information on all children with the same parents. If the surname is unusual, you may want to compile baptism entries for every person of the same surname and sort them into families based on the names of the parents. Continue to search the baptism records to identify siblings, parents, and other relatives in the same or other generations who were born, married, and died in or near to the same place.

Record History

Most of the time these records are created to help civil authorities and for the benefits of its citizens.

Record Reliability

Most of the records listed in this collection are reliable to a point, depending on the knowledge of the person giving the information and the person that received it and recorded it. The most used records for genealogical research are the civil registration records after 1876 and the church records before that date. However, if those are not available, the population registers (census) and emigration records are also reliable and great records to search for data that will help find other family members and other records.
