Marriage and Baptismal Records Translated

I found these documents on microfilm that I had ordered at my nearby Family History Center. I made photo-copies from the micro-film of the records that pertained to names that looked like my family names and I sent them to Carsten. It is very hard to find someone who can read the Old Style Fraktur writing and print. It was indeed a blessing when Carsten was able to be familiar with the Fraktur and translated for me from the German to English.

He has provided copies of the documents that I sent to him. Since they were so large he needed to show them in sections. But, on this webpage that he made for me, one can navigate around the site.

There is a wealth of genealogy information in these church documents. I will share more about them in another post.
