18th Century Records of the German Lutheran Church at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (St. Michael's and Zion): Volume 1, Baptisms 1745-1769


These translated records have never been published in English and thus have been unavailable to researchers until now. This is the first of several volumes that Dr. Hess is translating from the original German for his new series. Future volumes will cover marriages, burials, and later baptisms. The baptism records in this volume include the names of the child, parents and witnesses. Dr. Hess’s years of dedication to this project have created a ground-breaking genealogical series and a must-have for those with Lutheran ancestors in the Philadelphia region.
