Finding Your Ancestors' Town in Liechtenstein

  • Genealogical records are organized by geographical locality. Civil registration (government birth, marriage, and death records) and church records (christenings/baptisms, marriages, and burials) were kept at the local level. To search these records, you must know the town where your ancestors lived.
  • If you do not know your ancestors' town, follow the advice in the Wiki article, Liechtenstein Finding Town of Origin, to search a variety of records that might provide that information.
