Satow-Niederhagen, Mecklenburg: Guide to FHL Intl film 069568Edit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
The Family History Library has microfilmed the Evangelisch Kirche Satow-Niederhagen, Mecklenburg records for the years of 1751-1839 as located on FHL Intl film 069568.
Diving into the film revealed a complex holding that was somewhat difficult to navigate . The birth, marriages and death records from 1751-1839 are indeed on the film, though interspersed between historical notes, journal entries, tally sheets and many other informative and rich insights into the parish of Satow. In an effort to help a specific Library patron, and perhaps you too, the entire film was reviewed and the following article was created. Hopefully this will be of assistance to all who also need to navigate this film:
The first section of the film covers the years of 1751-1819 covering pages 1- 880 (though the last page number you can read is 878). Be aware there are gaps within the numbering system. Sometimes the registers were headed as “Getaufen” – christening and other times “Gebohren” – birth.
