Civil&nbsp;registration&nbsp;records&nbsp;are&nbsp;records of births, marriages, and deaths kept by the government. In Baden, they were started 1 January 1876. In addition, Baden kept civil registration between 1799 and 1811, during the Napoleonic occupation. If your family had a birth, marriage or death recorded during that brief time period, it will contain great information, due to the high level of detail in French records.'''<br> German terms for these records include ''Standesamtsregister'', ''Zivilstandsregister'', or ''Personenstandsregister''. They are an excellent source for information on names and dates and places of births, marriages, and deaths. These records are kept by the civil registrar (Standesbeamte) at the civil registry office (Standesamt). Study these links to learn what information can be found in them:

See the class {{LearningCenter2|502|'''Online Ortsfamilienbücher at'''}} and the Wiki article, [[Germany Town Genealogies and Parish Register Inventories on the Internet|'''Germany Town Genealogies and Parish Register Inventories on the Internet'''.]]
Published town genealogies, Ortssippenbuch (town lineage book) or Ortsfamilienbuch (town family book), generally include birth, marriage, and death data for all persons found in the local records during a specified time period, compiled into families based on the opinion of the author. '''If one is available, it should only be used as an ''index or guide'' to finding the original records. They usually contain errors. Always verify their information in original records.
