PARISH REGISTERS

of the "Evangelisch-Lutherische Kirche Oldenburg"

Here you can find a list of presaved parish registers of the dominating church in the northern part of the former Grand-Duchy of Oldenburg (Lower Saxony). In most of the cases these parish registers are in most of the cases accessable directly at the vicarages in their handwritten, original shape. Nearly all of them (covering the time before 1800, for a number of parishes until the 1810s or later) were filmed on microfiches as well and are available for look ups at the Oberkirchenrat Oldenburg, Philosophenweg 8, D - 26121 Oldenburg. Moreover, there are handwritten copies (so called "Zweitschriften") from 1801 on, accessable at the State Archive Oldenburg, Damm 43, D - 26122 Oldenburg (for the parishes of the church district Jever and for Neuenkirchen such "Zweitschriften" only exist from1825 on).

Please contact me if you find any faults regarding the content - especially if you realize that any of the included data is wrong or incomplete while doing research at the parish registers.
