Parish registers:

Our parish registers are available at and they date back to the time when records began up until 1894. It's completely free and without any need of registration. You can switch the language of the website to english, too.
That's the reason why we don't pass any of the original books to researchers in the archive. Even our old books which were blocked for conservational resasons are now accessable on the internet.
You can find a list of all our books and parishs here.


Register database:

You can search for names on in our database. It's available in english too, you just need to create an account for free.


Restriction period:

All parish registers are subject to restriction. You only have access to registers older than 120 years. In case you need any information younger than that please consult the local register office.
All other documents are subject to a restriction of 40 years.



Because of conservational reasons we do not print copies of archival documents like parish books. But it's possible to order a scan which we'd gladly send to you.
Taking pictures in the reading room is not permitted.



Your archival requests will be answered by our staff (Mr Michael Lang or Mr Wolfgang Fronhoefer). Don't hesitate to get in touch.
