This list completes the translation of this record (5 HTML pages in total), which includes a list of families, baptisms, marriages, deaths and confirmations.

The original records are handwritten in German.  The earlier years are in the difficult to read old style German script.  However, some years are written in German with a mixture of old style German script and a latanized version for the names and numbers which are a bit easier to read.  Entries may have additional information (when easily read, it's been written herein).  Please refer to the original source for the best possible translation and complete record!

Many years have no entries!

Please note that the names are the German equivalents of what most of these individuals used on a daily basis including, in some instances, the spellings of last names.  For instance Keesberger (still not spelled accurately, but phonetically closer to the German) was generally spelled Casbaker by the family members and Heinrich instead of Henry, etc..  I have left the spelling of all names as in the original source, as best as I could decifer them.  Where I'm unsure of the name or portion of a date, I have placed a "?" after it.  If I could not read it at all I have placed a "??", indicating the existence of the name/word, but that I couldn't read it well enough to even take a guess!  Anything written in [-] is my transcriber notes, based on my own research or on other material included in this church book.

I have left the format essentially the same as that written in the original document.
