Although Trinity Lutheran Church in Baltimore was once one of the largest and most active congregations in the city, sadly after 160 years, the congregation came to an end in the mid 1990s. During those sixteen decades, many thousands of people participated in the church sacraments of baptism, marriage, burial, confirmation and communion. Since civil registration in Baltimore City did not commence until 1875, nineteenth-century church records may be the only source of information about otherwise unrecorded countless lives. This volume contains extractions, transcriptions, and translations of d... View more info

Prior to civil registration for Baltimore City in 1875, genealogical resources authenticating births are mostly limited to church baptismal registers. Alternative options are few and far between. This is one of the first, if not the only published index to medical records from 19th century physicians in Baltimore City. Not only does this book present an index to a previously unpublished primary source, but it also provides a fascinating glimpse into the risks of everyday life in a previous century.250 pages, 6x9, 2007, 6x9, paper, 250 pp, Softcover, Heritage Books, Inc View more info

One of the most fruitful sources of historical and genealogical data concerning nineteenth-century German-Americans in Baltimore City is the German-language newspaper. Because of barriers of language, legibility and accessibility, this same resource is one of the most infrequently utilized tools of family history research. Although not always the largest of the dozen or so nineteenth century German-language publications in Baltimore, Der Deutsche Correspondent was one of the longest lasting. Nineteen-year-old immigrant Friederich Raine founded the paper in 1848 and the final issue of the paper... View more info
