Archives of the Protestant Church of the Church Province Saxony

In the so called “Magdeburger Kirchenarchiv” all church records of the whole Regional Church are recorded on microfilms. It does not if it is about baptismal books, marriage books from the Börde or funeral books from the area around Delitzsch. Due to this substantial stock we are always able to do research for you fast and without problems on this vast field.

The picturization is not yet completed but already now over 7.000 microfilms are stored in Magdeburg and can be reviewed by users. According to our own estimation over 90% of the relevant church book stocks are included
