How to Use the Record
The LDS Church has microfilmed parish registers from the 1560's up to 1821, making them available through local LDS Family History Centers. Most of the filmed registers are from Protestant parishes. Many of the registers were filmed multiple "Répertoires" or indexes.
Why This Record Was Created
Handwriting varies, of course, ranging from clear and elegant to completely illegible, which in turn may lead to incorrect transcriptions. Some records of the parish consistories have also been microfilmed, making them much more difficult to read despite containing interesting material about local disputes, relationships, occupations, origins of families, etc.
