Funeral sermons [Leichenpredigten] include remarks (eulogies) made by ministers regarding the life of a deceased person. In Germany these sermons were often collected and published. Published sermons were most popular prior to the time Germans colonized Russia. A few funeral sermons of Germans from Russia are indexed in the sources described in the “Obituaries” Wiki page for Germany.
