The Grundbuch for Garchen begins in 1819 and details the history of property owners in the village. Again, these types of records are especially helpful for filling in some of the gaps from the civil registry, as most of the church records before the institution of the civil registry no longer exist. Whole branches of family trees can be found, listing spouses and birth dates on occasion.

Help us make these records more accessible for researchers worldwide. If you can read old script, we would love your help to make the entries in these books searchable. Please consider donating your time, even if it's just for a few pages. (We also use Google Sheets so you can see where the last person left off and where the work needs to be continued!)
