About Brandenburg, Germany, Transcripts of Church Records, 1700-1874

This database contains transcripts of original parish registers from the  
state of Brandenburg, Germany, for the years ca. 1700-1874. The  
transcripts were prepared to aid in government civil registration. The  
registers record births, marriages, and deaths, as well as confirmations  
and lists of communicants for some years.

The parishes include localities that were formerly part of the province of  
Brandenburg but are now in Poland, as well as some locations that were  
historically part of the neighboring provinces of Posen, Pommern, and  
Schlesien that are now in Poland. Likewise, the records do not include all  
localities from the historic province of Brandenburg or the modern state  
of Brandenburg.

Records can be browsed by parish and year.
