This page lists names found in the Goldberg microfilm records. These records are from the registers of the Evangelistic Church in Goldberg, Mecklenburg-Schwerin. I performed this research in January, February, and March, 2002.

My search of these microfilm reels is neither complete nor thorough. I searched only for the names that appear in my family history, and in particular the name LABORN. I also transcribed some, but not all, of the records mentioning the names WESTPHAL, HAGEMANN, and ROHLOFF, since they may have some relationship to the Laborn family, although the exact relationship is not known. The "Rudolph Poison Ship" story cites relatives of the Laborns named "Westfall" and "Hagaman." Notes from my great-uncle Joe Mesker say that one of the Laborn sisters married "Mr. Ruhloff." I have also transcribed some, but not all, of records with the name LEBAHN, because of its similarity to Laborn. However, I do not believe that the Lebahn and Laborn families are related.

Baptisms

Where two dates appear, the first is the date of birth and the second is the date of baptism. Most records have text that I cannot read.

Confirmations

The confirmation records give the name of the individual, their birth date, and the name of their father. It appears that confirmations occurred once or twice per year..
