Schweiz, Kirchebücher Auszüge

Record Description

This is a collection of images of church records extracts for several Swiss cantons, however, it is not comprehensive. The title page of each book lists the surnames with town(s) and canton(s) from where the records were extracted.

Swiss church records are typically written in German or Latin. Regional dialect may affect the spelling of some German words and the use of vocabulary words. 

The extracts of these church books cover a majority of the population of Pratteln for the years 1550-1875. 

This collection of data, which was extracted from church books in Pratteln, Switzerland, covers the years 1550-1875

The church records were created to record church sacraments associated with the life events of the parishioners, such as baptisms, marriages and deaths. This collection of extracted data was created to make the research of Pratteln ancestors easier.

Church books are one of the most reliable and accurate family history sources. However, accuracy in the records is dependent upon the accuracy of the informant’s knowledge and the accuracy of the priest’s recording of the information. The extraction of data from these records may also introduce some mistakes; therefore, it is recommended that you verify the information in the originals and other vital records, if available.

For a list of surnames currently published in this collection, select the Browse link from the collection landing page.

  • Occupation of the ancestor’s father
  • Birth dates of the ancestor’s siblings and parents
