Vorpommern Marriage Abstracts--up to 1800

The Immigrant Genealogical Society has received several books of abstracts and indexes to all the readable marriage records prior to 1800 in Vorpommern (the part of Pomerania west of the Oder River that was formerly part of East Germany). They include only the western edge of Hinterpommern, now in Poland. The abstracts give names of the groom and bride, the fathers's names, occupations, residences, ages and the parish where the marriage occurred.

The books are of course in German with many abbreviations. We'll provide a list of commonly abbreviated terms and their translation. You may list the spouse's name so we can identify the correct entry. We'll count the marriages in each area and provide up to 3 copies of abstracts. If you know which area, check it.
