Map Guide to German Parish Registers, Volume 13: Rhineland III, RB Trier and The Pfalz (Palatinate)


This volume, listing 4,200 places, was principally written to help family historians resolve where their family may have gone to church – and left vital records behind that may be seen today (many available on Family History Library microfilm). This is the thirteenth of a series, covering all of Germany. The series is still in process. Note that Rhineland in its entirety is covered in three volumes. The Pfalz (Palatinate) is included in this volume with Rhineland, since its geographic location is such that it made more sense to include it with Rhineland than Bavaria. The Rhineland Trier portion of the book includes 2,505 places, while the Bavarian Province of the Pfalz includes 1,695 places. Even the smallest places are listed in this series – some with as little population as one person! These places are as of about 1870. If the place existed prior to that date, it will most likely be listed. If the place was named after that date, the chances drop.
