What you can find in a parish register?

The parish registers are the most important social databases of the past. The key events in someone's life are described in the parish registers. Every single baptism, marriage or funeral is recorded with the date and the family relations in the acts. The records of the 19th century comprehend more data than the first records of the 16th or 17th century.

Baptism registers

In the baptism registers you can find the given names and surname of the child to be baptized.

Marriage record

In a marriage record you can find the date of the marriage and the given names and surname of both bride and groom along with the witnesses.

Death- or burial record

In a death- or burial record you can find the given names and surname of the deceased and the death date.
