The key genealogical facts found on these records may include any of the following:

  • 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

To search the collection, select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page
⇒ Select the “Quellengattung”
⇒ Select the “Namensraum oder Beschreibung” which takes you to the images.

Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.

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 other civil records or church records.
  • The parents' places of origin can tell you former residences and can help to establish a migration pattern for the family.
  • 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.
