Getting started with Switzerland - Appenzell research

Parish registers accessible online!

As of April 2014, the Staatsarchiv Appenzell has published the church records of all nineteen Appenzell-Ausserrhoden parishes online. The records can be accessed at this URL: https://www.ar.ch/verwaltung/kantonskanzlei/staatsarchiv/kirchenbuecher-online/.  The records for Lutzenberg are found in the parish of Thal, which is part of the Canton of Sankt Gallen; those records are not available at this archive and therefore not online either.
