German church book duplicates are a back up source for parish registers, which are the best German records to identify individuals, parents, and spouses before the civil registration of vital events was created in different regions of the country between 1792 and 1876. In order to find your ancestor you need to know at least the village where the person lived, and approximate date of any event in his/her life. If not found in that locality, we suggest you search in nearby villages and also try several years before and after.

Inspired by the institution of civil registration in France in 1792, German states began creating church book duplicates. The German states required the clergy to create a transcript of their church books and turn them in annually to the state. The clergy recorded the vital events of births, marriages and deaths of people living within their jurisdiction regardless of their religion. For example, Catholic or Jewish people living in an area that did not have a Catholic church or Jewish synagogue were often recorded in the Lutheran records. The reverse was also true in Catholic areas, where Lutherans and Jews were recorded in Catholic records. The duplicate books cover the majority of the population for those years in the Grand Duchy of Baden. Records may include entries from Kreis Neustadt, Amt Bonndorf, Gemeinde Bonndorf, and Ebnet.

Collection Time Period

This collection of church book duplicates currently covers the locality of Bondorf for most of the period of the Grand Duchy, from 1810 to 1869.

Record Description

These church records are handwritten both in columnar format and in narrative style. Most records are in good condition to extract genealogical information, however, most of the earlier records are written in Gothic German script. These records were kept in bound volumes.

Record Content

  • Age of bride and groom (sometimes date and place of birth)
  • Residence of the bride, groom and their parents
  • Religion of the bride and groom
  • Occupation of groom and fathers


The key genealogical facts found in most deaths records are:

  • Names of the deceased, spouse, and parents
  • Date and place of death and burial
  • Age and residence of deceased and sometimes date and place of birth
  • Cause of death


How to Use the Records

German church book duplicates are a back up source for parish registers, which are the best German records to identify individuals, parents, and spouses before the civil registration of vital events was created in different regions of the country between 1792 and 1876. In order to find your ancestor you need to know at least the village where the person lived, and approximate date of any event in his/her life. If not found in that locality, we suggest you search in nearby villages and also try several years before and after.

Record History

Inspired by the institution of civil registration in France in 1792, German states began creating church book duplicates. The German states required the clergy to create a transcript of their church books and turn them in annually to the state. The clergy recorded the vital events of births, marriages and deaths of people living within their jurisdiction regardless of their religion. For example, Catholic or Jewish people living in an area that did not have a Catholic church or Jewish synagogue were often recorded in the Lutheran records. The reverse was also true in Catholic areas, where Lutherans and Jews were recorded in Catholic records. The duplicate books cover the majority of the population for those years in the Grand Duchy of Baden. Records may include entries from Kreis Neustadt, Amt Bonndorf, Gemeinde Bonndorf, and Ebnet.

Why This Collection Was Created?

Church book duplicates were created for the use of civil authorities.

Record Reliability

German church book duplicates, like the originals, are the most reliable and accurate family history source until 1876 when civil registration of births, marriages and deaths began in all of Germany. Church book duplicates may differ slightly from the originals because of transcription variations; however, these records are often more legible than the originals.
