During the first half of the 17th century occurred a lot of baptisms and marriages of people who did not originate from Lübeck. Most of them came from the Eastern parts of Germany, especially from Mecklenburg, but also from as far as Königsberg. A great percentage came from Denmark, Sweden and Norway. The author, Annie Petersen has listed the marriages and published them in Archiv für Sippenforschung 38. Jahrgang, Heft 47 (1972). The periodical is available through FamilySearch, FamilySearch Catalog, call number 943 B2as.
