Hamburg and Altona Marriage Abstracts

All the marriages from the oldest churchbooks in the Hamburg area up to 1750 have been abstracted and indexed in volumes acquired by the Immigrant Genealogical Society Library. Our volunteeers can search the indexes for your ancestor's surname, list how many times the surname appears in the records of each individual church within Hamburg and in each village or parish surrounding the city. (These include Altoona, which was an area from which there were many emigrants and today is part of the city of Hamburg.)

We will provide copies of 3 records -- you may tell us from which parish / village you wish the copies made. If you can provide the surname of both the groom and bride, we can cross-check indexes to try to identify your specific marriage.
