How to Use the Record

Record History

The LDS Church has microfilmed parish registers from the 1560's up to 1821, making them available through local LDS Family History Centers. Most of the filmed registers are from Protestant parishes. Many of the registers were filmed multiple "Répertoires" or indexes.

Why This Record Was Created

Record Reliability

Handwriting varies, of course, ranging from clear and elegant to completely illegible, which in turn may lead to incorrect transcriptions. Some records of the parish consistories have also been microfilmed, making them much more difficult to read despite containing interesting material about local disputes, relationships, occupations, origins of families, etc.

Why Should You Cite Your Sources?

It is recommended that you cite the sources of information as you search genealogical records. Citing sources will allow you to avoid duplicate searches later and share your sources with other researchers. A citation with specific details about the source document should allow yourself or others to easily find the source document at a later time. You should cite all sources searched, whether or not new information is found, to avoid duplicating searches without findings.
