ST. PAUL LUTHERAN CHURCH

COLUMBIA, ILLINOIS

Translated & typed by Robert Buecher, 5400 Pernod Avenue, St. Louis, Mo 63139-1537

[January 2005]

The following is a translation of the “Family Register” [“Familien Register” in German] of St. Paul Lutheran Church, Columbia, IL. The information is found on microfilm roll # 1006420 at the Family History Library, Salk Lake City, Utah. This Lutheran church was founded in 1841 with George Albert Schieferdecker as the first pastor. The “Family Register” is written in German and was most likely recorded by Pastor Renneke who served at St. Paul’s from 1850-1855. Additional information was added by Pastor Friedrich Holls who served from 1855-1883.

The “Family Register” contains detailed information about 26 families; many who were founding members of the church. The families are numbered consecutively with Roman numerals. Each family entry is composed of two half pages. On the left page is information about the “Eltern” (parents) and on the right page is information about the “Kinder” (children). The information about the children is written in columns, but has been written out in full for this transcription.

Brackets [ ] have been used to give additional information or to correct spellings. Quotation marks “. .” have been used to indicate information copied in the original German. When the German umlaut [two dots over the vowels ‘a’, ‘o’, or ‘u’] appears in the original, those names or places have been typed here as ‘ae’, ‘oe’, or ‘ue’.
