Film 740080 - Church records, 1743-1793

I did research on this microfilm reel beginning in September, 2000.

This reel contains the oldest records from Soufflenheim, except possibly the Evangelical Church records for Sessenheim.

All records on this reel are handwrtten.

The reel is divided into five volumes. Volume 2 is split into two sections, which I have called 2A and 2B. Volume 1 is by far the largest. Volumes 3, 4, and 5 are very small.

There is a gap in the marriage and burial records between 1755 and 1787.

Rosa Raiman has compiled an index of all of the baptisms from volumes 1 and 2. You can find it at "Soufflenheim Baptism Index, 1748-1793, By Rosa Raiman."
