Altar of the Johanniskirche
Confirmation document from the
St. Johannis-Gemeinde from 1913

Most of the original church books still exist in Berlin (Evangelisches Zentralarchiv Berlin). Some of them are still on films of the" Reichsippenamtes", today in Leipzig (Sächsisches Staatsarchiv Leipzig). The Mormons "Mormonen" also have films.

There were several parishes so some years overlap. Below is a summary:

  • Baptism 1614-1944 with gaps
  • Confirmation 1817-1944 with gaps
  • Banns 1932-1941
  • Marriages 1614-1944 with gaps
  • Deaths 1685-1944 with gaps
