The Immigrant Genealogical Society has acquired copies of marriage abstracts taken from old Mecklenburg churchbooks covering time periods from before 1704 to 1875.

If you do not know the village or parish in Mecklenburg where your family lived, a count of marriages of your surname in every index may suggest where to look.

If you know the ancestral village, we can check the index for that specific area and supply copies. We can probably identify the proper index from the village name. The Salt Lake Family History Library has microfilms of the churchbooks which these indexes cover.

The marriages are grouped under the following headings:
___ A--Stavenhagen, Malchin, Waren, Penzlin
___ B--Güstrow City, Güstrow County, Teterow, Laage
___ C--Robel, Malchow, Plau, Krakow, Goldberg
___ D--Schwaan, Neukalen, Gnoien, Tessin
___ E--Ribnitz, Marlow, Sulze
___ F--Doberan, Bukow, Drevesk, Butzow, Kroplin, Warin
___ G--Neukloster, Grevesmuhlen, Rehna, Gadebusch
___ H--Wittenburg, Zarrentin, Boizenburg
___ J--Lubz, Parchim, Neustadt, Grabow, Domitz
___ K--Hagenow, Crivitz, Sternberg, Bruel
___ L--Rostock City, Schwerin City, Wismar City
___ M--Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Area of Stargard
___ N--Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Principality of Ratzeburg
