Now online – Church Records of LANDESARCHIV SPEYER

More than 400 digitized church records, mainly from Palatinate and Rhine-Hessian parishes, are now available online in Archion. Catholic, Lutheran and reformed church records list baptisms, weddings, funerals and confirmations and primarily include the period from 1565 – 1798. Besides this classic information the inventory includes further interesting directories concerning family history. Especially researchers that are interested in local history get their money’s worth: numerous additional lists inform about conversions, migrations, local and church chronicle, about weather and harvest. The majority of the new inventory assembles church records that originally emerged in various parishes and came to Landesarchiv Speyer through municipal administrations. With the presentation in Archion it is now possible to make this historically valuable inventory available online to all interested people.
